About the Author:

Florence Nightingale, history's most notable nurse, earned her fame during the Crimean War. Nightingale led a group of three dozen nurses to Constantinople to serve in British military field hospitals, where female nurses had previously been forbidden. She convinced army officials to change terrible conditions in the hospitals, thus earning the gratitude of soldiers--and celebrity in her native England. When the war ended in 1856, she returned to London and continued her reform campaign. Her outspoken Notes on Matters Affecting the Health, Efficiency and Hospital Administration of the British Army (1857) and Notes on Hospitals (1859) helped create changes in hygiene and overall treatment of patients. She also founded the groundbreaking Nightingale Training School for nurses, and in later years published dozens of books and pamphlets on public health. Nightingale was awarded the Royal Red Cross by Queen Victoria in 1883, and in 1907 became the first woman to receive the Order of Merit.

Review:

-Because these notes record the skillful observations of a trained eye and mind on the fundamental needs of human beings in sickness and in the prevention of sickness, they are to a great degree timeless in their usefulness to the student of nursing in any country in the world.

-Virginia M. Dunbar, Dean, Cornell University

New York Hospital, New York City, 1946

-As one reads these notes one is impressed with the fact that the fundamental needs of the sick and the principles of good care for the well and the ill are the same today as when they were observed by Nightingale over one-hundred-years ago.

-Margaret B. Dolan, Professor and Head,

Dept. of Public Health Nursing, School of Public Health,

Univ. of North Carolina, 1969

-This is the work of genius if ever I saw one; it will, I doubt not, create an Order of Nurses before it has finished its work.

-Harriet Martineau, author of fiction and non-fiction, c. 1860
