A Healer is one who reaches out to the sick and wounded to bring them comfort and renew their health. Florence Nightingale turned her back on a life of ease and privilege to relieve the suffering of injured soldiers in the Crimea in 1854. Appalled by the poor sanitary conditions and lack of compassionate care provided in the military hospitals, she went to work, scrubbing the wards, serving nutritious meals, and treating the physical and emotional needs of her patients. Her compassion earned her the title “Lady with the Lamp,” as she spent the dark nights ministering to the men. Her efforts reduced the death rate in military hospitals by 60%. Upon her return to Britain, she established St. Thomas’ Hospital and the Nightingale Training School for Nurses. Her tremendous example inspired women around the world to join the field of nursing, elevating it to a respectable and honorable vocation. We honor Florence Nightingale’s dedication to heal and improve the lives of those around her with skill and compassion.
