Discover Florence Nightingale’s life story; hear about her famous lamp at Scutari Hospital and her later campaigns for nursing and health reform in England. Discover the difficult conditions that the nurses found themselves working in. Hear about some of their nursing methods and decide if you would have liked to take her medicine. Learn about the battles and harsh weather conditions which caused so many soldiers to be wounded or to fall ill, killing more than the fighting, and learn how the care of Florence and her team changed nursing in Britain.
