Florence Nightingale
Florence Nightingale
     Nightingale was a member of the British upper class when she became a nurse.  She traveled to the Crimean Penisula in 1854 to help improve the hospital conditions there during the Crimean War.   Hospitals there were more dangerous for soldiers than  the battlefield. Florence changed that in spite of  great opposition from the military doctors who didn't want a "society lady" telling them how to run their hospitals. After returning to England she spent the rest of her long life devoted to improving nursing and medical care in general.
