Beschreibung des Verlags
First published in 1914, “Florence Nightingale to Her Nurses” contains a selection of addresses given by Nightingale to the probationers and nurses of The Nightingale School at St. Thomas’s Hospital. Florence Nightingale (1820–1910) was an English social reformer, statistician, and pioneer of modern nursing. She became famous during the time she served as manager and trainer of nurses during the Crimean War, giving nursing a positive reputation and becoming a Victorian culture icon. Also known as "The Lady with the Lamp", she was an accomplished writer who produced a large corpus of work related to medical knowledge. Offering a unique insight into the mind and work of one of the most famous nurses in history, “Florence Nightingale to Her Nurses” is not to be missed by those with an interest in Florence Nightingale and how she shaped the face of modern nursing over a century ago. Other notable works by Florence Nightingale include: "Notes on Nursing: What Nursing Is, What Nursing is Not" (1859), "Suggestions for Thought" (1860), and "Una and the Lion" (1871). Read & Co. are republishing this volume now in a modern edition complete with an introductory from “Beneath the Banner, Being Narratives of Noble Lives and Brave Deeds” by F. J. Cross.
