was born in 1820 (The Victorian Times) In Florence, Italy.
When she was about 5 years old she moved to England with her parents
She was born into a rich family so she didn't go to a regular school, she was home schooled by her dad.

They wanted Florence to be a housewife.
However Florence disobeyed and went to Nursing School!

Florence made lots of improvements to the hospital in Scutari.
She had the drains cleaned, sorted out a supply of safe drinking water.
Filled the hospital stores with clean sheets and bandages, set up a nursing timetable and made sure that the soldiers were well fed and cared for.
Florence became very popular. The soldiers used to call her the
‘Lady with the Lamp’
because she used to walk the hospital wards at night to check on her patients
TIME FOR A CHANGE
A\ Doctors weren't so on board with nurses help the injured with their injuries, but they soon changed there minds!
Hundreds of men were coming through the hospital doors weekly and soon all the doctors were busy that they had to ask Florence and her nurses to help!
Florence would work 20 hour days - working through other nurses and doctors having their breaks, just to make sure the soldiers were safe, happy and healthy!
She knew she was loved by the Soldiers, and too show she loved and cared for them too she gave them a pet...

She created a 'TO DO' list on it was:
Clean English Hospitals
Create uniforms for Nursing/Doctors
Sufficient medical boxes
She began writing letters to all the people she knew who could help. Nightingale received an award from Queen Victoria herself for all her hard work!
Florence died in 1910, at the age of 90!
She is remembered worldwide for making hospitals clean and healthy.
Also for encouraging Nurses to be caring and clean.
How do you think the soldiers felt?

Nightingale's theories, published in 'Notes on Nursing' (1860), were hugely influential and her concerns for sanitation, military health and hospital planning established practices which are still in existence today.
