Florence Nightingale was a celebrated English nurse, writer, and statistician. A Christian Universalist, Nightingale believed that God had called her to be a nurse. She came to prominence for her pioneering work in nursing during the Crimean War, where she tended to wounded soldiers. She was dubbed "The Lady with the Lamp" after her habit of making rounds at night. International Nurses Day is celebrated around the world on her birthday.
“Florence loved learning. In those days, wealthy families like Florence’s did not send their girls to school. They were taught only music and art and were expected to marry rich gentlemen and have children.
~Florence Nightingale (Young Reader's Christian Library Series), by Kristi Lorene (pp. 18-24).
