Notes on Nursing: What It Is, and What It Is Not

(Paperback) by Florence Nightingale

5 stars

"This wonderful book should be required reading for anyone in the healthcare field. It is a sad reminder of how little we have done to maintain her work ethics, especially with regard to cleanliness, ventilation, and wholistic treatment of the infirm. It is striking how people of this modern age think their thoughts are so "cutting edge" and "innovative". Read this book and you will see Florence was thinking it long before they thought it." - Wilmadane (Macon,GA, U.S.A.)
