I’ve been reading Florence Nightingale’ s work, Notes on Nursing: What it is, and What it is not.  It’s interesting how relevant this text is to the work of nursing, especially concerning how much we should hover over those who receive nursing care,  and the role of the nurse in running interference between the patient and well-meaning folks who put their concern for the patient before his/her well-being, if you understand what I mean. 

This work is available free from Amazon if you have a Kindle.  If you don’t, here’s a link to Notes on Nursing – Nightingale (free).

Read it, I assure you, it’s a good use of your time, and while the content may seem obvious to us now, remember that Pasteur’ s germ theory wasn’t yet widely accepted during her time.  Hence, why her work is so amazing.
