Florence Nightingale: Laura Fraser

By June 11, 2017Nursing

Hello followers. I found another great nursing film. This one is about Florence Nightingale and her influence during the Crimean War. Laura Fraser plays Florence and does an incredible job in my opinion. Florence was born to privilege and lived a wealthy life with her family. When she was sent to help care for soldiers during the Crimean War she was met with shun. Male military figures did not understand basic hygiene and how to prevent sickness. It was only after so many had suffered that Florence was given the opportunity to help with a team of nurses. She preached that cleanliness, hand hygiene, medication, and proper nutrition were what the soldiers need in order to survive and heal. She wanted to change the single and simple minded military and medical professions during this great time of need. This is the first film that I watched about one of the founders of nursing.
