Product Description
This is a 30 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on Famous Women of Medicine – Florence Nightingale - Pioneering Nurse. Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides to the presentation as needed.

Florence Nightingale, was a trailblazing figure in nursing who greatly affected 19th & 20th century policies around proper care. She defied the expectations of the time and pursued what she saw as her God-given calling of nursing.

During the Crimean War, she and a team of nurses improved the unsanitary conditions at a British base hospital, greatly reducing the death count. She was known for her night rounds to aid the wounded, establishing her image as the 'Lady with the Lamp.'

Once the Crimean conflict was resolved, she returned to her childhood home, meeting with a hero's welcome, which the humble nurse did her best to avoid. The previous year, Queen Victoria had rewarded Nightingale's work by presenting her with an engraved brooch that came to be known as the "Nightingale Jewel" and by granting her a prize of $250,000 from the British government.

By the time she was 38 years old, she was homebound and routinely bedridden, and would be so for the remainder of her long life. Fiercely determined and dedicated as ever to improving health care and alleviating patients’ suffering, Nightingale continued her work from her bed. Residing in Mayfair, she remained an authority and advocate of health care reform, interviewing politicians and welcoming distinguished visitors from her bed

Eager to follow her example, even women from the wealthy upper classes started enrolling at the training school. Thanks to Nightingale, nursing was no longer frowned upon by the upper classes; it had, in fact, come to be viewed as an honorable vocation.

Her writings sparked worldwide health care reform, and in 1860 she established St. Thomas' Hospital and the Nightingale Training School for Nurses. A revered hero of her time, she died on August 13, 1910, in London.
