Overview

Florence Nightingale (1820-1910), who came to be known as The Lady of the Lamp, was a pioneer of modern nursing and a noted statistician. Inspired by what she took as a Christian divine calling, experienced first in 1837 at Embley Park and later throughout her life, Nightingale committed herself to nursing. In 1859, she set up the Nightingale Training School at St. Thomas' Hospital. In 1860 she wrote Notes on Nursing, a slim book that served as the cornerstone of the curriculum at the Nightingale School and other nursing schools established. She also wrote Suggestions for Thought to Searchers after Religious Truth. The three-volume book has never been printed in its entirety, but a section, called Cassandra, was published in 1928. It included in The Cause, a history of the women's movement.
