Florence Nightingale is often considered the founder of the modern nursing world. Today’s nursing system is heavily influenced by her work, and she established nursing as a respectable career for women in the 19th century and beyond.
Nightingale was born into a wealthy family, and her parents actually considered nursing to be beneath her social class. They would not allow her to train as a nurse for a length of time, but eventually allowed her to train in Germany after Nightingale persisted. Her education in the field took a short three months, yet it allowed her to gain impressive experience at the Establishment for Gentlewomen hospital.
In 1854, the Crimean War began, and Nightingale was called to help the wounded. The military hospitals were breaking out with cholera and typhus epidemics due to unsanitary operations and an overall unclean environment.
Upon seeing the unsanitary state of the military hospitals, she worked hard to lower the mortality rate by induction sanitation methods. At a time when death was more common in the hospitals than even on the battlefields, she helped to provide necessary changes in medical practices to prevent unnecessary deaths.
Upon returning to England after the war, she opened the Nightingale Training School for Nurses.
Nurses who trained here spread their knowledge to hospitals across Great Britain, developing the image of healthcare that we know today, and preventing deaths causing from uncleanliness in hospitals. Many graduates of the Nightingale Training School for Nurses also established other nurse training programs based on Nightingale’s model throughout the country.
Nightingale didn’t just work towards more sanitary work environments in hospitals, she also tracked how this affected mortality rates with data that is now referred to as the Polar Area Diagram. With such impressive strides in a field that was, at the time, considered a lower-class profession, she changed the way that the world saw nursing.
