About the Book

Florence Nightingale initially released her book Notes on Nursing: What it Is and What it Is Not in 1859. It was a 76-page book with a 3-page addendum that Harrison of Pall Mall published with the intention of providing nursing advice to people who were responsible for other people's health. Florence Nightingale emphasized that the book was intended to aid in the practice of caring for others rather than serve as a full manual for learning how to become a nurse. The Nightingale School of Nursing's then-director Joan Quixley stated in her introduction to the 1974 edition that despite the passage of time since the publication of Notes on Nursing, "The book astounds one with its applicability to contemporary attitudes and nursing skills, whether these are used by the "ordinary woman" at home, in a hospital, or in the community. The social, economic, and professional distinctions of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries in no way prohibit the young student or learner from developing if he or she is driven to do so, its unchanged fundamentals by way of intelligent thought and practice".

About Author

Florence Nightingale

An English social reformer, statistician, and the creator of modern nursing, Florence Nightingale was born on 12 May 1820 and died on 13 August 1910. When Nightingale organized to care for injured soldiers at Constantinople during the Crimean War, she gained notoriety as a nurse manager and educator. By raising cleanliness and living standards, she drastically decreased death rates. In particular, as "The Lady with the Lamp" visited injured soldiers at night, Nightingale gave nursing a positive reputation and emerged as an iconic figure of Victorian society. Even Nightingale's critics accept the importance of her later work in advancing nursing for women and claim that the media inflated her efforts during the Crimean War. In 1860, she founded her nursing college at St. Thomas' Hospital in London, establishing the foundation for contemporary professional nursing. Now a part of King's College London, it was the world's first secular nursing school. The Florence Nightingale Medal, the highest international accolade a nurse can get, and the annual International Nurses Day, observed on her birthday, were named in her honor in commemoration of her pioneering work in nursing.
