‘’THE LADY WITH THE LAMP’’ ~ BORN ON THIS DATE IN 1820

Florence-Nightingale

Florence Nightingale was a celebrated English nurse and writer. She came to
prominence for her pioneering work in nursing during the Crimean or Russian
War, where she tended to wounded soldiers. She was dubbed "The Lady with
the Lamp"after her habit of making rounds at night. Nightingale laid the foundation
for the nursing profession with the establishment of a school for nursing in 1860 at St Thomas Hospital in London. It was the first secular nursing school in the world. An international Nurses Day is celebrated annually around the world on her birthday. On 
August 13, 1910, at the age of 90, Florence Nightingale died peacefully in her sleep.
