Hello my name is Florence. I want to tell you about my idol from which my name is taken from. Her name is Florence Nightingale. She was born in 1820 to a wealthy English family. She decided in her teens to become a nurse, even though her parents disapproved. At that time, most nurses were from poor families and had little or no training. But Nightingale was determined to have her way. In 1850 and 1851, she received training at hospitals in Egypt and Germany.
In 1853, Nightingale took charge of a hospital in London, England. Here she showed skills as a nurse and an organizer. She had bells put beside patients’ beds. When patients needed a nurse, they rang their bells. Nobody had thought of this idea before.
Nightingale devoted the rest of her long life to improving public health and educating people about the importance of good hygiene. Britain’s hospitals accepted her ideas, and they became cleaner and healthier places.
In 1860, Nightingale set up a training school for nurses in London. The “Nightingale nurses,” s its graduates were called, helped spread Nightingale’s ideas around the world Nightingale died in 1910 at the age of 90.
