Notes on Nursing: What It Is, and What It Is Not. FREE Kindle Edition

by Florence Nightingale

Average Customer Review: 5.0 out of 5 stars

"This is a wonderful book that should be a required reading for anyone working in or around the healthcare field. It is a sad reminder of how little we have done to maintain her work ethics,especially, in regards to cleanliness, ventilation, and wholistic treatment of the infirm. Nightingale has a certain " tongue in cheek" way of speaking in parts of this book. She suffered no ignorance nor laziness.
It is striking to me 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.)

Florence Nightingale: A Life Inspired. Kindle Edition

Lynn M. Hamilton, Wyatt North (Authors)

Average Customer Review: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Has there ever been someone who accomplished so much and at the same time thought less of herself? Before she had even turned forty, Florence Nightingale was the darling of the British public, the heroine of the Crimea. She could have sailed home to England and comfortably dined out on her fame for the remainder of her long days. 

Florence Nightingale: The Crimean War: Collected Works of Florence Nightingale, Volume 14 Kindle Edition

This volume contains much on Nightingale’s efforts to achieve real reforms. Her well-known, and relatively “sanitized”, evidence to the royal commission on the war is compared with her confidential, much franker, and very thorough Notes on the Health of the British Army, where the full horrors of disease and neglect are laid out, with the names of those responsible.

Eminent Victorians: Cardinal Manning; Dr. Arnold; Florence Nightingale; General Gordon. Kindle Edition

Lytton Strachey  (Author)

Average Customer Review: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Strachey cleverly exposes the self-seeking ambitions of Cardinal Manning and the manipulative, neurotic Florence Nightingale; and in his essays on Dr Arnold and General Gordon, his quarries are not only his subjects but also the public-school system and the whole structure of nineteenth-century liberal values.
