True or False? Florence Nightingale was the first woman nurse. False! Women had worked as nurses for years, but it was considered a miserable job. Few nurses in England had any medical training. Florence helped make nursing a respectable profession for women. She was in charge of nurses at British military hospitals in the Crimean War (1853-1856). She set up the Nightingale Training School for Nurses in London. She wrote more than 13,000 letters and 200 books and pamphlets during her life.
