Florence Nightingale & Mary Seacole

Primary school resources to support the teaching of Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole.

Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole were two remarkable women who travelled to the Crimea to nurse and offer help to the wounded soldiers.

Florence took with her a team of nurses and soon realised that the filthy conditions in the hospital were contributing to to the early deaths of many of the soldiers. With the help of her nurses the hospital was cleaned up, the men were better cared for and the death rate dropped.

Mary set up the British Hotel which provided comfortable quarters for the recovering soldiers. She had an interest in and practised herbal medicine. She provided much needed food, support and shelter for the men. Her work in the Crimea was overshadowed by Florence Nightingale’s for many years. However recently there has been a re-newed interest in her achievements.
