Florence Nightingale

Image of item
Florence Nightingales name is perhaps more familiar than her reputation as the founder of modern nursing. This notable biography, full of striking photographs and images, explains how this remarkable woman bucked societal pressure to become a nursethe Lady with the Lamp. Nightingales work in military hospitals during the Crimean War was the beginning of great reforms in hospitals all over the world. Spellbound readers will be aghast to learn of the appalling conditions of hospitals of the 19th century and grateful for Nightingales persistence in improving medical care.
