Well-known as the founder of modern nursing, Florence Nightingale also pioneered health science, health statistics, social reform and what we now term evidence-based practice, holistic nursing, nursing theory, and public health. The ongoing utility and vitality of such a far-ranging and far-seeing legacy-which detailed the broad scope of today's nursing practice-is the subject of this book.
"Three renowned nurse scholars join the director of the Florence Nightingale Museum to present an illustrated and insightful portrait of this remarkable woman. Interpreting the historical record of Nightingale's life and work through the tenets of healing, leadership, and global action, the authors identify, analyze, and discuss the many ways that her work- practical and visionary-can rejuvenate nurses, nursing, and health care worldwide in our time as it did in her own."
