Florence Nightingale
May 12, 1820 - August 13, 1910
Written by Cynthia Audain, Class of 1998 (Agnes Scott College)
Florence Nightingale is most remembered as a pioneer of nursing and a reformer of hospital sanitation methods. For most of her ninety years, Nightingale pushed for reform of the British military health-care system and with that the profession of nursing started to gain the respect it deserved. Unknown to many, however, was her use of new techniques of statistical analysis, such as during the Crimean War when she plotted the incidence of preventable deaths in the military. She developed the " polar-area diagram " to dramatize the needless deaths caused by unsanitary conditions and the need for reform. With her analysis, Florence Nightingale revolutionized the idea that social phenomena could be objectively measured and subjected to mathematical analysis. She was an innovator in the collection, tabulation, interpretation, and graphical display of descriptive statistics. Florence Nightingale's two greatest life achievementspioneering of nursing and the reform of hospitalswere amazing considering that most Victorian women of her age group did not attend universities or pursue professional careers. It was her father, William Nightingale, who believed women, especially his children, should get an education. So Nightingale and her sister learned Italian, Latin, Greek, history, and mathematics. She in particular received excellent early preparation in mathematics from her father and aunt, and was also tutored in mathematics by James Sylvester. In 1854, after a year as a unpaid superintendent of a London "establishment for gentlewomen during illness," the Secretary of War, Sidney Herbert, recruited Nightingale and 38 nurses for service in Scutari during the Crimean War.

Florence Nightingale is best remembered for her work as a nurse during the Crimean War and her contribution towards the reform of the sanitary conditions in military field hospitals. However, what is less well known about this amazing woman is her love of mathematics, especially statistics, and how this love played an important part in her life's work. Named after the city of her birth, Nightingale was born at the Villa Colombia in Florence, Italy, on the 12th May 1820. Her parents, William Edward Nightingale and his wife Frances, were touring Europe for the first two years of their marriage. Nightingale's elder sister had been born in Naples the year before. The Nightingales' gave their first born the Greek name for the city, which was Panthenope. William Nightingale had been born with the surname Shore. He had changed it to Nightingale after inheriting from a rich relative, Peter Nightingale of Lea, near Matlock, Derbyshire. The girls grew up in the country spending much of their time at Lea Hurst in Derbyshire. When Nightingale was about five years old her father bought a house called Embley near Romsey in Hampshire. This now meant that the family spent the summer months in Derbyshire, while the rest of the year was spent at Embley. Between these moves there were trips to London, the Isle of Wight and to relatives.

Nightingale, Florence
British nursing pioneer
The daughter of wealthy and cultured parents who expected her to marry into fashionable society, Florence Nightingale was determined to be a nurse at a time when nursing was viewed as a disreputable occupation. She went on to make it a cherished and respected profession.
Defying her family and prejudice against rich working women, Florence sailed for the Crimea in 1854, where thousands of soldiers from Britain's war with Russia were dying in hospitals that were in a filthy condition. In less than six months, Florence had become a legend. Her tireless labor reduced death rates from 42 percent to 2.2 percent.
Returning to Britain in 1856, she wrote a treatise advocating sweeping reforms of the army's medical administration - most were implemented. Her outrage that nursing was considered unsuitable for ladies and fit only for low-grade domestics prompted her to open Britain's first training school for nurses at London's St.Thomas's Hospital. A national heroine, Florence was the first woman to be honored with the rarely awarded Order of Merit.

Florence Nightingale (1820 - 1910)
Florence Nightingale can boast at least two firsts among her achievements - not only was she the first to found training schools for nurses, she was also the first woman elected fellow of the Statistical Society because of her contribution to army statistics. Although she was conscious of her calling at an early age, she found it difficult to break from her social circle and pursue a nursing career. Born to William Edward and Frances Nightingale (in Florence, Italy, hence her name) she was expected to fulfil the usual role of a wealthy young woman, making a good marriage and living a conventional life. But Florence had other ideas: as a child she enjoyed learning and developed an interest in social issues, visiting her local hospital and the homes of the sick. Because her parents considered the profession inappropriate to a woman of Florence's standing, she was denied her wish to train as a nurse and Florence may have suffered from bouts of depression in response to her situation. However, in 1851 she finally had her way and trained first in Kaiserswerth and then Paris. Two years later she became superintendent of a hospital for invalid women in London. Her theories, published in Notes on Nursing (1860), were widely influential and her concerns for sanitation, military health and hospital planning established practices still in existence today.

Go to Table of Contents Join a talk/chat group about Florence Nightingale n 1854 Florence Nightingale took 38 women to Turkey to nurse wounded and sick British soldiers in the Crimean War. This was the first time the government had allowed women to do this. Almost all modern nursing systems and techniques we know today can be traced back to her. She suffered from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) for the rest of her life. She became not only the first modern war nurse and nurse commander but its first documented psychological casualty. I got interested in her story through my work with Vietnam War nurses. Some of what I have learned so far I have organized into a timeline of her life.

Florence Nightingale
Krankenschwester Florence Nightingale * 12. Mai 1820 in Florenz Als Tochter einer wohlhabenden Familie sah Florence Nightingale ihre Lebensaufgabe in der Pflege kranker Menschen - "Schwester" aller Kranken und Leidenden zu sein, ist eine der schönsten, aber auch schwersten Lebensaufgaben, die sich eine Frau stellen kann. Als "Lady with the lamp" (Dame mit der Lampe) ist sie dargestellt und einer der breiten Öffentlichkeit bekannt geworden, und noch heute gilt sie als Organisatorin der britischen Krankenpflege. Nach ihrer Rückkehr veröffentlichte Florence Nightingale ihre Erfahrungen in den "Notes of Hospital" und fasste ihre pflegerischen Grundsätze in den "Notes on nursing" zusammen, die 1859 und 1860 veröffentlicht wurden. Aus Mitteln einer Geldsammlung konnte sie am St. Thomas´ Hospital in London am 15. Juni 1860 die "Nightingale Training School for Nurses" eröffnen - die erste Schwesternschule in England, in der die Ausbildung zur Krankenschwester unter ärztlicher Anleitung und nach modernen wissenschaftlichen Maßstäben erfolgte. startseite persoenlichkeiten Link - Tipps: The Old Operating Theatre Museum

Facsimile. Florence Nightingale's precepts on the art of nursing were first given to the world in 1860. The best known, and in some ways the best, of her books-it was first published early in January. It popularly ranked with Darwin's The Origin of Species as one of the two most important scientific books of the 19 th century. This is the elaborate Boston copy.
Miss Nightingale was the founder of a new nursing and Notes on Nursing was its gospel. It is still true, indeed. "The work is but an inexpensive Pamphlet, not costing the price of one bottle of medicine. But it is destined, we trust, to reduce doctor's bills in many families." Examiner, 1860.

The Florence Nightingale Story
Early Years
Florence Nightingale was born in Italy on 12 May 1820 and was named Florence after her birthplace. Her parents, William Edward and Frances Nightingale were a wealthy couple, who had toured Europe for two years on their honeymoon. During their travels their first daughter, Parthenope, was born in Naples (Parthenope being the Greek name for the city), followed one year later by Florence. On returning to England the Nightingales divided their time between two homes. In the summer months they lived at Lea Hurst in Derbyshire, moving to Embley in Hampshire for the winter. Lea Hurst is now a retirement home and Embley is now a school.
Call From God
Florence and Parthenope were taught at home by their Cambridge University educated father. Florence was an academic child, who loved her lessons and found studying easy, while her sister excelled at painting and needlework. Florence grew up to be a lively and attractive young woman, admired in the family’s social circle and she was expected to make a good marriage, but Florence had other concerns. In 1837, whilst in the gardens at Embley Florence had what she described as her ‘calling’. Florence heard the voice of God calling her to do his work, but at this time she had no idea what that work would be.
