1858, Florence Nightingale, photo not discovered until 2006. Florence Nightingale, one of nursing’s most important figures, gained worldwide attention for her work as a nurse during the Crimean War. She was dubbed “The Lady with the Lamp” after her habit of making rounds at night to tend to injured soldiers.
