Notes on Nursing: What it is, and what it is not – Florence Nightingale

This is an interesting book. It was written before the big discoveries such as that of antibiotics, and yet the majority of what Miss Nightingale says is still good nursing practice today. Not only did she revolutionise nursing in her lifetime, she still has wisdom to offer nurses today (perhaps with the exception of the bit about keeping a lid on your ‘utensil’). It’s nicely written too, it’s a good read.
