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

    Florence Nightingale

    The Notes on Nursing is the revolutionary book by one of the founders of «modern medicine.» Although Florence Nightingale was ridiculed for her views and approach by many contemporaries, including prominent doctors of her times, she stood her ground. She saved many lives from unnecessary death of hospital infection. Florence Nightingale first started demanding that all the surgical instruments were boiled and the rooms ventilated. She collected and summed up her views in a 74-page brochure of notes on nursing, in which she described the role of clean water, air, food, and beds, as well as the cleanliness of hospital personnel for patient recovery.

    Florence Nightingale to Her Nurses

    Florence Nightingale

    "Between 1872 and 1900 Miss Nightingale used, when she was able, to send an annual letter or address to the probationer-nurses of the Nightingale School at St. Thomas' Hospital, 'and the nurses who have been trained there.' These addresses were usually read aloud by Sir Harry Verney, the chairman of the Nightingale Fund, in the presence of the probationers and nurses, and a printed copy or a lithographed facsimile of the manuscript was given to each of the nurses present, 'for private use only.' A few also were written for the Nightingale Nurses serving in Edinburgh… Since Miss Nightingale's death… heads of nursing institutions and others have asked for copies of the addresses to be read or given to nurses, and her family hope that [this] publication of a selection may do something to carry further the intention with which they were originally written."–From the Preface.

    Florence Nightingale

    First published in 1859, «Notes on Nursing» was written by the innovative female nurse Florence Nightingale, the woman responsible for improving hospital conditions in war-torn Crimea. Though relatively short, this work is entirely comprised of nursing hints designed to aid individuals entrusted with the health care of others. The advice Nightingale wrote of included such practicalities as the ventilation, heating, noise, light, bedding, and cleanliness of the invalid's environment, as well as a nurse's personal cleanliness and methods of observation. This work also addresses the treatment of the individuals being nursed, from the food they consume to the things they should or should not be told. Though the author herself stressed the fledgling nature of her guide, Nightingale's effort to systematize the care of the unhealthy has since earned her recognition as one of the world's founders of modern nursing.
