Transcript: "Nightingale's hospital visits began in 1844 and continued for eleven years. She spent the winter and spring of 1849-50 in Egypt with family friends; on the journey from Paris she met two St. Vincent de Paul sisters who gave her an introduction to their convent at Alexandria. Nightingale saw that the disciplined and well-organised Sisters made better nurses than women in England. Between 31 July to 13 August 1850, Nightingale made her first visit to the Institute of Protestant Deaconesses at Kaiserswerth. The institute had been founded for the care of the destitute in 1833 and had grown into a training school for women teachers and nurses. Her visit convinced Nightingale of the possibilities of making nursing a vocation for ladies. In 1851 she spent four months at Kaiserswerth, training as a sick nurse. When she returned home, she undertook more visits to London hospitals; in the autumn of 1852 she inspected hospitals in Edinburgh and Dublin. In 1853 she accepted her first administrative post when she became superintendent of the Hospital for Invalid Gentlewomen." "In September 1856 Nightingale visited Queen Victoria at Balmoral and told the Queen and Prince Albert about everything that 'affects our present military hospital system and the reforms that are needed'. In November 1855 a Nightingale fund had been set up to found a training school for nurses. This was the only recognition of her services of which Nightingale would approve. By 1860, £50,000 had been collected and the Nightingale School and Home for Nurses was established at St. Thomas's Hospital. Nightingale's health and other occupations prevented her from accepting the post of superintendent but she watched the progress of the new institution with practical interest. She was able to use her experiences in the Crimea for the benefit of the nursing profession. She settled in London and lived the retired life of an invalid, although she spent a great deal of time offering advice and encouragement through her writing and also verbally. In 1857 she issued an exhaustive and confidential report on the workings of the army medical departments in the Crimea and in 1858 she published Notes on Matters affecting the Health, Efficiency and Hospital Administration of the British Army. In 1858 a Commission was appointed to inquire into the sanitary condition of the army: it set a high value on her evidence. In 1859 an army medical college was opened at Chatham and the first military hospital was established in Woolwich in 1861. During the American Civil War and the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-1 her advice was sought by the respective governments. Nightingale was involved in establishing the East London Nursing Society (1868), the Workhouse Nursing Association and National Society for providing Trained Nurses for the Poor (1874) and the Queen's Jubilee Nursing Institute (1890)." She was also known for the lady with the lamp. From Britanica and Google. this is from the biogrophy of Florence Nightingale. this is also from the biogrophy of Florence Nightingale.

Transcript: That pateints are accustomed to the filth and it does them no harm" is not only thought but said even in the present year of grace (or Disgrace) 1893. Founded Florence Nightingale School of Nursing Her accomplishments... Her most famous piece of writing is " Notes on Nursing: What it is, and What it is not. By Florence Nightingale. Harrison and Sons, 1860. My mind is absorbed with the idea oof the sufferings of man, it besets me behind and before...all that poets sing of the glories of this world seems to me untrue. All the people I see are eaten up with care or poverty or disease. 12 May 1850: "Today I am 30-The age Christ began his mission. Now no more childish things. No more love. No more marriage. Now Lord, let me think only of Thy Will, what thou willest me to so. Oh Lord, Thy Will, Thy Will." The Lady with the Lamp The wounded from the battle-plain In dreary hospitals of pain The cheerless corridors The cold and stormy floors. Lo! in that house of misery A lady with a lamp I see Pass through the glimmering gloom And flit from room to room And slow, as in a dream of bliss The speechless sufferer turns to kiss Her shadow, as it falls Upon the darkening walls Florence used her eye for detail and inovative mind to improve the patient's care. Two figures emerged from the Crimea as heroic, the solider and the nurse. In each case a transformation took place, and in each case the transformation was due to Miss Nightingale. Never again was the British solider to be ranked as a drunken brute, the scum of the earth. He was now a symbol of courage, loyalty, and edurance, not disgrace but a source of pride. Never again would the picture of nurse with her own image... IN the midst of the muddle and the filth, the agony had brought about a revolution. (Cecil Woodham-Smith in Florence Nightingale, 1951) Florence had a passion for helping sick people and used that passion to change the face of nursing... Nursing is an art; and if it is to be an art, requires as exculsive a devotion, as hard a preparation, as any painter's or sculptor's work; for what is the having to do with dead canvas, or cold marble, compared with having to do with the living body the temple of God's spirit...It is one of the fine arts; I had almost said, the finset of the arts. Light is essential for growth, health and recovery from sickness - not only daylight, but sunlight. This should be meant to include color, pleasant and pretty sights for the patient's eyes to rest on - varitey of objects, flowers, pictures. The sun is a sculptor as well as a painter. Woman of GOd We do the best we can to train our women to an idle superficial life; we teach them music and drawing, languages and poor peopling; "resources" as they are called and we do hope that if they don't marry they will at least be quiet. -Florence Nightingale
