Florence Nightingale

Florence Nightingale (12 May 1820 – 13 August 1910) was was an English social reformer and statistician, and best known as the founder of modern nursing. Nightingale became widely known when she served as a manager of nurses trained by her during the Crimean War, where she organized the tending to wounded soldiers. She became an icon of Victorian culture, brought prestige to nursing, and was known as "The Lady with the Lamp" while making rounds to wounded soldiers at night. In 1860, Nightingale established the foundation for professional nursing with the foundation of the first secular nursing school in the world at St. Thomas’ Hospital in London. Nightingale was a writer and social activist; her social reforms include healthcare reform, advocating better hunger relief in India, helping to abolish prostitution laws, and expanding opportunities for female participation in the workforce.
