Summary Florence Nightingale is an aristocratic woman who defied Victorian society to reform hospital sanitation and to define the nursing profession as it is known today. After volunteering to travel to Scutari to care for the wounded soldiers of the Crimean War, she was scorned by her community and was faced with great opposition for her new way of thinking. However, through her selfless acts of caring, she quickly became known as 'The Lady with the Lamp,' the caring nurse whose shadow softened those who had been wounded in battle.
