Florence Nightingale is best known for her pioneering work in the field of nursing during the Crimean War (1853-1856). She led a team of nurses to the military hospital in Scutari, Turkey, where they improved hygiene, sanitation, and overall medical care for wounded soldiers. Nightingale’s efforts reduced the mortality rate in the hospital by two-thirds and helped establish nursing as a profession. She became known as “The Lady with the Lamp” due to her habit of making rounds at night to check on her patients. Her work during the Crimean War revolutionized the field of nursing and laid the foundation for modern nursing practices.
