Read&Download Note on Nursing by Florence Nightingale Online
Neither in my own nursing education at the B.S.N. nor at the
M.S.N. level, was it even suggested, much less required, that I read any
of Florence Nightingale's original writings. Even as a nurse educator
for over 30 years, I did not require my students to read her writings
either. After reading this book, I now believe it is a void in the
education of a nurse not to read at least some of the writings of the
founder of modern day nursing. Notes on Nursing would be an excellent
choice. This book introduces holistic health, home health, alternative
therapies, health prevention and maintenance, the role of women in
nursing and in everyday life, nursing administration, leadership,
communications skills, mind/body and body/mind relationships. Her theory
on the use of light, fresh air, warmth, cleanliness, quiet, and the
proper selection and administration of diet is also well explored. -
