Notes on Nursing
by Florence Nightingale

In this little book the person responsible for establishing nursing as a science-based profession managed to identify the elements of nursing that are still the core of the profession today. Only the technologies have changed. I value these core elements and the emphasis that Nightingale placed on the responsibility that nurses have for caring and for positioning the patient so that healing can occur.
