She served the wounded soldiers carrying lanterns during the war. Because of this, she is also known as ‘Lady with the Lamp’. The proposal to celebrate this day was kept in 1953, but President Eisenhower rejected his request. However, the proposal was approved in January 1974. Thereafter, 12 May was observed as International Nurses Day, in the honor of Florence Nightingale. International Council of Nurses (ICN) has been celebrating this day since 1965.
