Florence Nightingale was an English social reformer and statistician, and the founder of modern nursing. Florence came to prominence while serving as a manager and trainer of nurses during the Crimean War, in which she organised care for wounded soldiers. She gave nursing a favourable reputation and became an Icon of Victorian culture, especially in the persona of “The Lady with the Lamp” making rounds of wounded soldiers at night.

In 1860, Florence laid the foundation of professional nursing with the establishment of her nursing school at St Thomas’ Hospital in London. It was the first secular nursing school in the world, and is now part of King’s College London. She is truly a source of inspiration and a phenomenal woman!

Happy nurses week and thanks for all you do.

Have a lovely weekend guys.
