That would be Florence Nightingale. She made many reforms to nursing and health care and drastically cut the death rate amongst soldiers in the Crimean War as a result of her hard work, dedication and training of fellow nurses Nurses Day is held on the 12th May each year is because that is her birthday.

Florence Nightingale is considered the founder of modern nursing.
Florence Nightingale was born on May 12, 1820 and died on the 13 of August, 1910. She was a celebrated English nurse, writer and statistician. An Anglican, Nightingale believed that God had called her to be a nurse. She came to prominence for her pioneering work in nursing during the Crimean War, where she tended to wounded soldiers. She was dubbed "The Lady with the Lamp" after her habit of making rounds at night
