Born on May 12, 1820, in Florence, Italy. She liked to abstain from being the focal point of consideration at whatever point conceivable. Florence and her sister, Parthenope were named after Italian cities.I n 1837 she got a "divine calling" to do God's work, which started her promotion of social and medicinal services causes and in the long run drove her to build up nursing as a distinct profession.


She deplored crowding and unsanitary conditions. Nightingale helped make the medical environment cleaner in order to increase health conditions of the patients and for the doctors/ professionals. Nightingale addressed the more basic problems of providing decent food and water, and things like that, that were decimating medical supplies.
