Florence Nightingale

Florence Nightingale was born in Italy, the youngest of 2 children and her pher parents names were Frances Nightingale and William Shove Nightingale. florence never liked being the center of attention and oftenly butted heads with her mother. when nightingale started to get older she got sick with cholera outbreak and unsanitary conditions. after she got better she enrolled into a nursing school called lutheran hospital of pastor fliendner in kaiserwerth germany even though her parents disagreed with her getting a job.

If it was not for Florence hospitals would still be dirty, a lot of people would be dead, also I would probably not survive through my pneumonia. She has saved a lot of lives. She has even saved lives today. She has also changed the way that people look at nursing forever, before Nightingale nursing used to have little respect.

"I attribute my success to this: i never gave or took any excuse."

"Nursing in an art; and if it is to be made an art, it requires as exclusive a devotion, as hard a preparation, as any painter's or sculptor's work."

Nightingale is famous for being the founder of modern nursing. Nightingale did her work in the Crimea caring for the soldiers that were injured during the war. There was almost 18,000 soldiers that were injured in the Crimea that her and 34 other nurses had to take care of and heal. When she came to the hospitals with a lot of injured soldiers it was filthy. There was rats crawling everywhere, they did not have clean water for the soldiers to drink, the soldiers clothes were dirty and bloody. As soon as Florence saw she went right to work. She scrubed, she washed, she bought things with her own money to get the soldiers better. She loved and cared for the soldiers.

Florence got awarded $250,000 and a brouch that is known as the Nightingale Jewel.

Every night when Florence would check on the men she would carry a lamp so some of the men called her "The Lady with the Lamp".

Born: May 12, 1820 Died: August 13, 1910
