Florence Nightingale was born on May 12, 1820, to wealthy English parents. Although it was not customary at the time for someone of her background to become a nurse, she felt it was her calling.

Her parents were horrified, as nineteenth-century hospitals were dirty and primitive. Still, Florence tirelessly pursued her dream, serving the poor and sick. She became the superintendent of a hospital in London, cared for the wounded in the Crimean War, and campaigned for improved medical conditions for British and American soldiers.

Florence Nightingale's high standards for health care revolutionised the nursing profession.
