International Nurses Day is celebrated annually on May 12 to mark Florence Nightingale’s birthday. Renowned as the Lady with the Lamp, Florence Nightingale served as a manager and trainer of nurses during the Crimean War in the early 1850s and administered care for wounded soldiers. She also fought for improving healthcare facilities and advocated better hunger relief in India.
Florence Nightingale also founded the world’s first professional school of nursing at St Thomas’ Hospital in 1860. The nursing school is now part of King’s College London.
