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 and discusses, to some degree, many of the
concepts nurses have been dealing with since before my entrance into the
field in the 1969, and certainly ever since. Included in these pages
are concepts such as 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. Some
of the comments are unexpected and very insightful. - Anita S. Kessler,
R.N., M.S.N., M.Ed. Florence Nightingale was the founder of the modern
nursing profession. She single handedly revolutionized medical treatment
with her writings on nursing. Anita S. Kessler is an R. N. With Master
Degrees in both nursing and education. She has been an educator of
nurses for more than thirty years.
