Florence Nightingale was a famous nurse who was born on 12th May 1820. She is famous because of her nursing work during the Crimean War and for the changes that she made to the nursing profession. Florence was also called The Lady with the Lamp. Can you find out why she has this nickname? A special visitor from Thackray Medical Museum will be coming to our school this half term to help us learn all about the life of Florence Nightingale. Please visit the Thackray Medical Museum website to find out more information.
