Florence Nightingale


Italian nurse who learned nursing at the age of 33, eventually becoming a hospital superintendent. She was a selfless hero in the Crimean War (1854-1856) and became a world-known authority on the care of the sick. She founded the nursing profession as we know it today, establishing her first nursing school in London, 1860. Her shrewd, compassionate "Notes on Nursing" became a bestseller.

During the Crimean War, Florence contracted a fever that left her so weakened that she spent the last 50 years of her life as an invalid. The tall, willowy girl became a stout, pleasant-faced old lady whose sight was quite gone by 1902, and her mind began to weaken. On 8/13/1910, she fell asleep about noon and died at 2:30 PM, London, England
