Assigned Reading #1: Notes on Nursing, what it is and what it is not
I went into reading Florence Nightingale’s Notes on Nursing very skeptically, mainly because of the fact that it was so old, so of course, how could it possibly apply to today. Oh, naive me. But nonetheless, I read it, and was actually pleasantly surprised. It talks about technique that is fundamental for the contemporary nurse, in addition, it beautifully elaborates on the approach to the patient. This was a lovely read, and indeed, an inspiring read. It also proves the point that as ever-changing as the industry is, nursing is not only universal, its timeless.
