Today we celebrate Florence Nightingale. Florence was a British nurse, social reformer, and known as the founder of modern nursing. She established St. Thomas Hospital. Created the Nightingale Training School for Nurses. During the victorian era, young women were expected to get married and start having kids. Nightingale went against the grain. At 17, she had refused to marry a “suitable” gentleman saying that while he stimulated her intellectually and romantically, “her moral active nature requires satisfaction and that would not find it in this life.
