In the time since Florence Nightingale first developed the profession of nursing as it is known today a lot has changed for the men and women in the field. Even still the work they do has been a key part of the medical world as training has increased and improved as well.

Christi Deaton, PhD, RN, from the University of Cambridge is one of several nurses in the United Kingdom who works as a part of the foundation that carries Nightingale's name. Deaton said that while there has been changes in the field she believes the work at the bedside and the commitment to proper training would make Nightingale proud of the people who have followed in her footsteps.
