    Florence Nightingale

    If you think of Florence Nightingale as a beatific, selfless nurse who spent her life gently tending to the sick and wounded--think again. The real Florence Nightingale spent only three of her 90 years as a nurse. After that, she was a semi-invalid who clung to Victorian mores, actively lobbying against treating nursing as a profession and dismissing women who fought for equality. And the woman considered the founder of modern nursing adamantly refused to recognize the discoveries of modern science. Nevertheless, Nightingale--nicknamed “the lady with a lamp”--managed to make sweeping improvements in health care, setting new standards for sanitation and cleanliness in the treatment of disease and becoming an inspiration for millions.
