Notes on nursing :
what it is, and what it is not /
by Florence Nightingale.


Main Author: Nightingale, Florence, 1820-1910.
Language(s): English
Published: Philadelphia : J.B. Lippincott Company, 1946.
Subjects: Caregivers.
Note: "The following notes are by no means intended as a rule of thought by which nurses can teach themselves to nurse, still less as a manual to teach nurses to nurse. They are meant simply to give hints for thought to women who have personal charge of the health of others. ... Every day sanitary knowledge, or the knowledge of nursing, or in other words, of how to put the constitution in such a state as that it will have no disease, or that it can recover from disease, takes a higher place. It is recognized as the knowledge one ought to have--distinct from medical knowledge, which only a profession can have."--Preface.
Facsimile reprint of the 1st ed., published in 1859 by Harrison, London.
"The appearance of this facsimile reprint is the culmination of an initial suggestion from Helen G. McClelland, Director of Nursing of the Philadelphia Hospital, plus the present scarcity of the first edition, which appeared in London over the Harrison imprint in 1859. The first available American edition followed in 1860 over the imprint of D. Appleton and Company. This facsimile has been reproduced from the copy in the Rare Book Room of the Library of Congress."--"The story of this reprint", p. [1]
