Overview

The 1859 publication of Notes on Nursing: What It Is, And What It Is Not made Florence Nightingale a nursing champion. By the author's own admission, the work was not written as a training manual for nurses. Yet in many ways, this best seller defines the precepts that became the prototype for contemporary nursing practice, provides a compelling historical perspective on the evolution of healtcare delivery, and provides an intimate glimpse into the Victorian Age. Although nurses no longer empty chamber pots, open chimney flues, they may be interested to find among Nightinggale's writings such modern-day concepts as the mind-body connection, plant therapy, and pet therapy.
