You may be familiar with Florence Nightingale and her outstanding accomplishments in the nursing field. But how much do you really know about her? Here are five facts about Nightingale’s life that may surprise you.
1. Her parents didn’t want her to enter the nursing field.
Nightingale’s affluent British family ran with some of the most elite social circles in the country.

Everything you need to know for the first step to nursing school.
If you've considered applying for nursing school, you've probably heard about the TEAS. While people seem to be more familiar with the NCLEX-RN and NCLEX-PN examinations, the TEAS is a common preadmission test used by many nursing programs. TEAS, which stands for Test of Essential Academic Skills, is administered through Assessment Technologies Institute (ATI) Nursing Education. The test is a basic aptitude test designed to identify students who would succeed in nursing school and who have the ability to think like a nurse. While all examinations can seem a bit daunting, it's important to remember that it's another step to figuring out if nursing school truly is for you.
