Florence Nightingale: The Courageous Life of the Legendary Nurse
Florence Nightingale: The Courageous Life of the Legendary Nurse | Catherine Reef
5 posts | 2 read | 19 to read
Most people know Florence Nightingale was a compassionate and legendary nurse, but they don t know her full story. This riveting biography explores the exceptional life of a woman who defied the stifling conventions of Victorian society to pursue what was considered an undesirable vocation. She is best known for her work during the Crimean War, when she vastly improved gruesome and deadly conditions and made nightly rounds to visit patients, becoming known around the world as the Lady with the Lamp. Her tireless and inspiring work continued after the war, and her modern methods in nursing became the defining standards still used today. Includes notes, bibliography, and index."

So happy I chose this as my Women‘s History month book. As a baby nurse growing in a pandemic my nursing career has been stressful and scary, but this put things in perspective for me. I have never had to work under the conditions that this amazing woman did, and she did it all while changing the future of healthcare and keeping her faith. She is still teaching some of us important life lessons. #Flo #babynurse #nurselife #womenshistory

My pick for Women‘s History month. I started late so I‘m hoping to finish before the month is out. I figured this would be a good one for me seeing how it checks a bunch of boxes for me; Women✅ Nurse✅ Christian ✅ A little defiance ✅lol.

Love #bookmail! I wanted a physical copy of this lovely bio of Florence Nightingale that I read through #NetGalley. After I read Donahue's The Wonder, I became more interested in Florence Nightingale and her nurses.

MrBook It's the best mail 😊! 6y
