'Florence Nightingale' the world's first nurse, is also known as 'The Lady with the Lamp'. Florence, who was fond of serving people since childhood, had decided in 1844 that she would become a nurse.

Ignoring this dream, her family members wanted to get her married, but she flatly refused to marry. Believing defeat, the family members allowed her to go to Germany to take nursing training. After this, Florence started working in this area with full service.

Florence Nightingale is better known as an 'angel' who saved the lives of the wounded. Her most important contribution was in the Crimean War. In 1854, she was sent to Turkey with 38 nurses to serve the wounded, where she served the wounded patients day and night.

She was awarded the title of 'The Lady with the Lamp' for her service work done at the same time. He was awarded the 'Order of Merit' by the British Government. To honour this work of Florence, International Nurses Day is celebrated every year on her birthday.
