In 1853 the Crimea (Russia)war broke out. Florence was asked to travel to Crimea (Russia) and organise a group of nurses but when she arrived there at the hospital the nurses were only allowed to clean the hospital not help the doctors.
After time the doctors asked the nurses to help though, because there were too many hurt soldiers. Florence and her team were greatly appreciated! And when she came back to London she was given loads of awards then she founded a school for nurses and still improved conditions in hospitals! She died in 1990 of old age!
