Nightingale.net

Nightingale.net is a site to celebrate the achievements and historical importance of one of the world’s most famous nurses: Florence Nightingale, the Lady with the Lamp. She was a British woman who in the 1800s revolutionized the way women worked in healthcare, and the importance of nurses, while also impressing the men around her with her nerve, heroism and intelligence.

If you’re interested, I recommend you read more about her in any number of books and other websites – my site/blog can only begin to be a source of information. You can even read Florence’s own work for free by downloading it from Project Gutenberg, a legal archive of out of copyright works.
