Simultaneously witty, scathing, anecdotal, and factual, Florence Nightingale's ""Notes on Nursing"" is perhaps the most influential work on nursing throughout the world. For years, the three extant versions of this seminal work puzzled scholars as well as readers. Now, Dr. Skretkowicz sets the historical record straight. Presenting all three versions, annotated and unabridged, this commemorative volume of the classic nursing text will be the standard for years to come. Also included is Nightingale's ""Notes on Nursing for the Labouring Classes"". Dr. Skretkowicz's commentary provides a clear view of health conditions of the era with reference to descriptions by Dickens and other novelists of the time. This work will be of great use and interest to scholars, nursing historians, nursing theorists, and Nightingale enthusiasts, alike. It features superbly presented historical background. It is a beautifully bound commemorative volume in faux leather with ribbon. It includes comments from internationally known nurse educators/historians. It also includes Notes on Nursing for the Labouring Classes.
