Florence Nightingale was one of the most influential nurses ever. During her time nursing started to become a profession instead of them being criminals off the street or so on. There were many things that she did which have made huge impacts on the field today. For instance, she would keep statistical charts and notes on everything that was happening and through them she would show what the actual conditions of the deaths were. She rose to fame during the crimean war where she earned the nickname, the lady with the lamp. She really cared about the well being of the men and their families which was a different concept for the profession. The way the museum was set up was interesting. One part in particular was when it talked about the advancements she made during the war for the men because i want to be a nurse in the intensive care unit or emergency room for the military so to see how one person tried to help all those people in horrible conditions, and how she made it better for future generations was fascinating. Another interesting fact was that “notes on nursing” a book she wrote was not intended for nurses, it was intended for mothers so that they can learn to take care of their families. Florence Nightingale was a highly connected woman on a mission to help and helped changed how people are cared for.
