Florence Nightingale, who was called as “the lady with the lamp,” by the sick and injured at Crimean war, has laid down strong foundational principles in nursing. Her multitasked role contributed significantly toward the development of nursing profession into structured institution. As an administrator, educator, researcher Nightingale's contributions moved nursing from disrespectable profession into replacing more of autonomy and evidence-based practice.
The 13 million nurses worldwide constitute most of the global healthcare workforce and are uniquely positioned to engage with others to address disparities in healthcare to achieve the goal of better health for all.
The women saving the world; From Florence Nightingale to the suffragette medics of the First World War, to the dazzlingly brave doctors and nurses battling Covid-19 today, generations of selfless women have risked their lives to help others during wars, terror attacks and pandemics.
