Florence Nightingale - Victorian Feminist and Medical Reformist

Florence Nightingale May 12, 1820 – August 13, 1910) was a celebrated English nurse, writer and statistician. She came to prominence for her pioneering work in nursing during the Crimean War, where she tended to wounded soldiers. She was dubbed "The Lady with the Lamp" after her habit of making rounds at night. An Anglican, Nightingale believed that God had called her to be a nurse.


The ANA gives an unlimited amount of information to the current nurse, the nursing student, and to anyone that just likes to learn.


Since coffee is what gets a lot of nursing students going every day, this wouldn't be a bad idea for a graduation cake for a future nurse!


This is not mine, I came across this “Cranky Old Man” poem while browsing around, it touched something in me enough to want to share it here. It scares me a little picturing myself where he was when writing this poem. I mean mentally, emotionally. I guess there’s a little of that poem in me. Wondering what people see when they look at me. Anyway, there’s a little story before the Cranky Old Man poem, you have to read it to appreciate the poems depth.
