Overview

Excerpt:

The following notes are by no means intended as a rule of thought by which nurses can teach themselves to nurse, still less as a manual to teach nurses to nurse. They are meant simply to give hints for thought to women who have personal charge of the health of others. Every woman, or at least almost every woman, in England has, at one time or another of her life, charge of the personal health of somebody, whether child or invalid,--in other words, every woman is a nurse. Every day sanitary knowledge, or the knowledge of nursing, or in other words, of how to put the constitution in such a state as that it will have no disease, or that it can recover from disease, takes a higher place. It is recognized as the knowledge which every one ought to have--distinct from medical knowledge, which only a profession can have.
If, then, every woman must at some time or other of her life, become a nurse, _i.e._, have charge of somebody's health, how immense and how valuable would be the produce of her united experience if every woman would think how to nurse.
I do not pretend to teach her how, I ask her to teach herself, and for this purpose I venture to give her some hints.

I have been a nurse for 30 yrs & I thoroughly enjoyed this book! So much of nursing never changes, and with the author's 'translation' it's entertaining and enlightening. I would recommend this book for any nursing school curriculum - great 'intro to nursing'

The content is there but there are tons of typos, misprints, and extra symbols. I paid for a different copy that is stillvless than the paperback that reads better.
