Summary

Explores Florence Nightingale's life and legacy in the field of nursing.

When Florence Nightingale was born in 1820, women from wealthy families did not become nurses, or take up any other paid work. Yet Florence was determined to do something with her life. In the end, her persistence paid off. She was asked to lead a team of nurses to care for wounded soldiers during the Crimean War and became famous for her work. Despite years of illness after the war, she used her fame to campaign for changes in all sorts of areas.

Two hundred years later, this biography explores Florence's life and achievements - from her ideas about nursing and the importance of healthcare for all, to her emphasis on the power of data and statistics to reveal the reasons why changes should be made. Her story is illustrated with fascinating objects and photographs from her life, many of them held at the Florence Nightingale Museum.
