Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jayalakshmi Jambunathan, PhD, MSN, MA, BSN, BSc (University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh)
Description: This is a compilation of photographs reflecting the historical evolution of nursing from 1900 to the present. Interspersed with the pictures are comments by nurses who experienced this historical development.
Purpose: The purpose is to portray the continual caring provided by nurses throughout the past century. The editors hope that readers will move beyond the printed material and become absorbed in the multitude of contributions nursing has provided, not only to individuals and families, but also to society during the past century.
Audience: Although the editors do not specify an audience, it would be an inspiration for all nurses and the general public. The content is credibly chosen to reflect nursing's care over the past century,
Features: The book is a photographic journey through a century of nursing care. There are photographs of nurses and nursing care, timelines of current events for each decade, and letters and notes from nurses who have experienced a century of caring. The photographs are all in black-and-white, which adds dignity to the portrayal of nursing. The source of each picture is referenced at the end of the book.
Assessment: This is a unique addition to the nursing history literature. It prompts reflection about nursing's past through a photographic montage interspersed with timelines of events that were current for each decade of the last century. It is a very thoughtful, artistic portrayal of nursing's contributions to caring and is very aptly titled. The memory of nursing care is eloquently expressed in notes and letters from nurses. There is no better way for nurses to enter the new century than to remember nursing of the past century.

Introduction

"We live in an age awash in electronic and print images of people, places, and events, but to find a book devoted to photographs from the history of American nurses and nursing care is unusual. The reasons for this fact are simple. There were few photographs taken of nurses early in the century, and only a small number of these survived..."----Barbara Brodie, PhD, RN, FAAN. Professor of Nursing, University of Virginia School of Nursing, Charlottesville, VA.

"...The past 100 years have produced advances in nursing and health care that not even the wildest minds could have imagined. Throughout this century we have observed the discovery of blood types, antibiotics, vitamins, and vaccines. Hearts have been transplanted, and iron lungs, once used to support breathing, now rest in museums...This photo essay book portrays the continual caring provided by nurses throughout the past century. As you look at the photos, review the timelines, and read the letters and notes from nurses, we hope you see and feel beyond the printed material and become absorbed in the multitude of contributions nursing has provided..." June D. Thompson, DrPH, RN. Executive Editor, Harcourt Health Sciences.
