A History of Nursing

A History of Nursing

by Louise Wyatt




A History of Nursing aims to explore the history of nursing by investigating the earliest records of the caring profession, how it progressed, and what established it along the way to becoming the nursing we see today. It will start at the beginning of the story—how, once upon a time, all we had to depend on was Mother Nature. Over time, education and standards improved for the safety, development, and governance of the profession. Not everything was plain sailing and the book aims to meet lesser-known people who made this possible, sometimes at great cost to themselves, and the effect military nursing had in the 19th century to help turn nursing within religious principles to the secular nursing we see today. How did nursing go from being knowledge handed down through ancient scripts, folklore, and sometimes by accident, to the degree-level, accountable practice of modern times? And why do nurses not wear hats anymore?!

About the Author

Louise Wyatt realized her love of words and all things written when, at the tender age of five, she began devouring Ladybird books faster than my teacher could supply them. After winning various writing and poetry competitions throughout school, she ended up having her family then training to be a nurse, but always wrote for pleasure. Louise started a blog five years ago for her love of history and soon discovered she enjoyed unearthing little-known facts about certain areas. Over the past few years, Louise has become a book reviewer and proof reader.
