Nursing has certainly come a long way since the time of Florence Nightingale. We should not forget the courage and perseverance of the Lady with the Lamp who remains the most famous nurse in history. This inspirational figure helped to transform nursing into the highly respected profession it is today. You are reading page 5 of Florence Nightingale Birthday: World's Most Famous Nurse.

I tried to visit the Florence Nightingale Museum in London the last time that I visited the UK. Even though I visited on a day when they were supposed to be open, the museum was closed for an unexplained reason. Maybe next trip.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Florence Nightingale!

Nursing is an art, and if it is to be made an art, it requires an exclusive devotion as hard a preparation as any painter's or sculptor's work, for what is the having to do with dead canvas or dead marble, compared with having to do with the living body? Nursing is one of the Fine Arts; I had almost said, the finest of Fine Arts. ~ Florence Nightingale

I love the fact that she was the "black sheep" of the family that often butted heads with her mother. This describes me to a T and it describes many of the nurses I know and love. Maybe that is part of our genetic make-up :) Thanks for the interesting article.
