HOW FLORENCE NIGHTINGALE CHANGED THE WORLD.

Florence Nightingale was born to an affluent family during the 1820s in Florence, Italy. From a young age, she was very involved in helping ill, poor people in a neighboring village and realized nursing was her God-given calling.

Back then, pursuing a career in nursing, especially coming from the upper class, was frowned upon. However, this didnt stop her.

Nightingale enrolled in a nursing program at the Institution of Protestant Deaconesses in Kaiserwerth, Germany in the 1850s. After her formal education, Nightingale began her career at a Harley Street hospital in London and was immediately promoted to the superintendent for her outstanding performance.

Florence Nightingale was a member of the Church of England and often prayed for God to give her a task that would define her life.

During the Crimean War, she trained and organized nurses to care for wounded soldiers and became known as the founder of modern nursing.

The year before she returned, Queen Victoria rewarded her work with an engraved brooch known as the Nightingale Jewel and a $250,000 prize.

She decided to use this money to create the Nightingale Training School for Nurses, becoming a public figure who continued devoting her time to nursing and writing until she died in 1910.

7 LESSONS TO LEARN FROM HER STORY:

1. Follow your dreams. Don't sit back and do nothing, take affirmative steps daily.

2. Be passionate in your area of expertise and show up daily.

3. Be selfless and kind-hearted.

4. Have a prayer life.

5. Serve Humanity.

6. Invest in long-term projects.

7. Raise your kind.
