Publisher's Summary

Notes on Nursing is a classic by Florence Nightingale (the first modern nurse). Florence Nightingale's methods were revolutionary in her time, and they form the basis for the techniques of patient management that have been taught ever since. Notes on Nursing is a great overview, in her own words, of Florence Nightingale's ideas on care, cleanliness, and the nursing process in general. Her directives are widely applicable today. First published in 1860, Notes on Nursing served as the cornerstone of the curriculum at the Nightingale School and other nursing schools established. It also sold well to the general reading public and is considered a classic introduction to nursing. Florence Nightingale spent much of her life promoting the establishment and development of the nursing profession and organizing it into its modern form. Anyone interested in the healthcare process, nursing, or notable women in history would do well to read Notes on Nursing.

    "Essential reading whether you're a nurse or not"

    Nightingale's thoughts in this book are timeless - excellent reminders on how to live healthy lives and protect our home environments against infection.

    Story
    "Voice matches content"

    The narrator really seems to capture what comes across in Nightingale's own writing as verve, pragmatism, and incisiveness.

    A lot of Nightingale's nursing advice is obsolete, but the means by which she arrives at that advice (considerate, patient-centered care that is undergirded by critical thinking) forms the cornerstone of modern nursing.
