Notes on Nursing by Florence NightingaleFlorence NightingaleOnline
| NA Pages
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 which every one ought to have--distinct from medical
knowledge, which only a profession can have.
