Publisher's Summary

Notes on Nursing is a classic by Florence Nightingale (the first modern nurse). Florence Nightingale's methods were revolutionary in her time, and they form the basis for the techniques of patient management that have been taught ever since. Notes on Nursing is a great overview, in her own words, of Florence Nightingale's ideas on care, cleanliness, and the nursing process in general. Her directives are widely applicable today. First published in 1860, Notes on Nursing served as the cornerstone of the curriculum at the Nightingale School and other nursing schools established. It also sold well to the general reading public and is considered a classic introduction to nursing. Florence Nightingale spent much of her life promoting the establishment and development of the nursing profession and organizing it into its modern form. Anyone interested in the healthcare process, nursing, or notable women in history would do well to read Notes on Nursing.

Voice matches content

The narrator really seems to capture what comes across in Nightingale's own writing as verve, pragmatism, and incisiveness.

A lot of Nightingale's nursing advice is obsolete, but the means by which she arrives at that advice (considerate, patient-centered care that is undergirded by critical thinking) forms the cornerstone of modern nursing.

Not the best

As a nurse, I accepted this book as a historical essay on how nursing was back in her time. However, I would not recommend this as a book for nurses to follow in present day. Additionally, she came off a little arrogant and judgmental. After reading Nightingale’s biography, I now know why. She wasn’t the nicest person and was very unhappy. Read this book if you want but I wouldn’t consider it a must read for nursing students as it once was.

A good audiobook for nursing students!

It gives a good foundation of knowledge on nursing. It gives valuable insight of the profession and what to look out for.

Essential reading whether you're a nurse or not

Nightingale's thoughts in this book are timeless - excellent reminders on how to live healthy lives and protect our home environments against infection.
