Florence Nightingale Chapter

Who was Florence Nightingale?

Florence Nightingale was a British Nurse, social reformer, and statistician. She was best known for founding modern nursing, also named the "The Lady With the Lamp." Her work in the Crimean War as a nurse inspired her to start her own nursing school; St. Thomas' Hospital. Her work significantly benefited the healthcare system into the 19th and 20th centuries. Although she passed away in 1910, her legacy and foundational work for the nursing system will always inspire people in STEM. 

Who's teaching?

Led by seniors in Dougherty Valley High School, Nayja and Nirvaa are the Chapter Directors of the Florence Nightingale Chapter. This year they are teaching Math Competition and Web Development. 


They joined the WLS foundation in 2020, and are very excited to continue helping kids grow in their love for STEM. They are both very passionate about STEM as well as reading and writing. They hope to inspire more students into joining STEM.
