This unique journal is inspired by the work of Florence Nightingale who is best known for having founded modern nursing and helped improve the care provided by hospitals. At the Eighth International Conference of Red Cross Societies in London in 1907, each delegate was presented with a copy of a letter from Queen Alexandra noting Florence Nightingale's efforts on behalf of suffering humanity. Florence Nightingale herself also sent a letter expressing interest in the conference and hopes for their success.
The International Committee of the Red Cross instituted Florence Nightingale medal in 1912, to be awarded annually to nurses who had given exceptional care to the sick and wounded in war or peace. This medal is still awarded today.
