Florence Nightingale : lady with the lamp by Sam Wellman( Book )

5 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

God called her to serve -- and she took on the most difficult of duties. Florence Nightingale never questioned the day God called her into His service. But determining just what that service would be was another matter. "Decent" young women of the nineteenth century weren't expected to work -- especially not in the foul, disease-ridden medical camps of the British military. But that's where the "Lady with the Lamp" found her calling: comforting sick, wounded, and dying soldiers, and fighting for their rights within an apathetic establishment. From Scutari Hospital in the Crimean War, she turned the medical world upside down. Florence Nightingale's efforts revolutionized the care of hospital patients and elevated nursing to the noble rank it holds today. Most importantly, it clearly demonstrated Jesus' teaching of service "unto the least of these my brethren." - Back cover
