Happy Birthday Florence Nightingale

florence nightingale
We salute Florence Nightingale, a pioneer nurse. Nightingale would celebrate her 189th birthday this month.

Nightingale was an advocate for the improvement of care and conditions in the military and civilian hospitals in Britain. Florence Nightingale’s lasting contribution has been her role in founding the modern nursing profession. She set an example of compassion, commitment to patient care, and diligent and thoughtful hospital administration.

Nightingale wrote Notes on Nursing, which was published in 1860, which served as the cornerstone of the curriculum at the Nightingale School and other nursing schools. Nightingale would spend the rest of her life promoting the establishment and development of the nursing profession and organizing it into its modern form.
