National Nurses Week: Florence Nightingale, a pioneer of her time

Florence Nightingale

Born May 12, 1820 to a wealthy British family, Florence Nightingale is credited as being the founder of modern nursing.  At a very early age she cared for the ill and poor in her community and decided at age 16 she would pursue nursing as her calling. 

Famous as a pioneer for the advancement of nursing – did you know she was also brilliant at mathematics?  She used these skills to support her theories on improving care and reducing the death rates of patients.

Considering her time in history – she was extraordinarily brave to advocate against enormous challenges to fight for effective reforms in the entire British military hospital system and medical care in general.  Neither she nor her ideas were always readily accepted.  Her perseverance and dedication to the improvement of patient care helped establish a strong foundation for the care delivered today.

We celebrate International Nurses Day on her birthday.  So on May 12, as you reflect on the challenges we face in our modern world of healthcare today – reflect on the achievements and contributions made by Florence during her career.
