“Extraordinary Nurses Throughout History” celebrates the amazing efforts of eight notable nurses, collected in honour of Florence Nightingale's 200th birthday. Throughout history, many notable women have helped create and improve the practice of modern nursing that we are all familiar with today. Since the first documented mention of professional nurses in approximately 300 AD, their contributions at times when nursing was much less well established are invaluable when studying how nursing has evolved throughout the ages. This fascinating and insightful exposition of the lives and achievements of notable nurses will appeal to those with an interest in the history of nursing and would make for a worthy addition to collections of allied literature. Chapters include: “Dorothea Dix”, “Mary Seacole”, “Florence Nightingale”, “Clara Barton”, “Sarah Emma Edmonds”, “Linda Richards”, “Edith Cavell”, and “Violetta Thursten”, and also included is an introductory essay entitled “Representative Women - The Free Nurse” by Ingleby Scott.

Named a 2013 Doody's Core Title! "This beautiful book bound in red leather includes an in-depth history about each version and the preparation and publishing of Nightingale's works. What is very interesting is the editor's commentary on the bibliographical and social history behind the various versions. He discusses little known facts about the book, such as the one published for the educated professional is the second version, whereas the other versions, though more widely published and more widely known, were written mainly for the masses. The editor's research clearly describes Nightingale's legacy and the effect it has had on contemporary nursing as well as nursing's future. At $40.00, it is a steal."Score: 98, 5 Stars.-- Doody's Medical Reviews "With the 2010 publication of Dr. Victor Skretkowicz's Florence Nightingale's Notes on Nursing (Revised with Additions) in Florence Nightingale's (1920-1910) centenary year, nurses and others will recognize this extraordinary woman whose dedication and determination helped to shape the course of modern global healthcare and holistic and integral relationship-centered care." Barbara Dossey, PhD, RN, AHN-BC, FAAN International Co-Director, Nightingale Initiative for Global Health Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, and Arlington, Virginia "This book was a delight. An account of cutting-edge nursing and medical care from London, circa 1850, by somebody who needs no introduction. Florence Nightingale is nothing if not forthright and her description of both the nursing and social situation of the times is illuminating."--IAHPC (International Association for Hospice and Palliative Care) Newsletter Simultaneously witty, scathing, and anecdotal, Florence Nightingale's Notes on Nursing is perhaps the most influential work on nursing throughout the world. For years, the varying editions of this seminal work have puzzled scholars as well as readers. Now, Dr. Skretkowicz sets the historical record straight. This volume includes the annotated and unabridged July 1860 edition [the "Library Standard Edition"] of Notes on Nursing, the 1868 edition of Notes on Nursing [for the Labouring Classes], and additional manuscripts written by Nightingale in 1875 that she was never able to publish. Beautifully bound in faux leather with a decorative ribbon, this commemorative volume makes a perfect gift for any nurse and is a must-have for all nursing libraries and researchers. The new edition presents Nightingale's unabridged edition in its original form for the very first time since its publication in July 1860. Together with the 1868 edition and the 1875 manuscripts, the book provides today's educated readership with the nearest possible "authoritative, complete, and unexpurgated" version of "one of the best selling, globally circulated texts of the nineteenth century." Key Features: Complete with Dr. Skretkowicz's own expert commentary and annotations Describes the variant versions of the texts in the contexts of their social and cultural history Presents some of Nightingale's original passages that remained unpublished for more than 100 years Provides reactions and commentary from Nightingale's contemporaries "

Let’s face it: this generation is increasingly not waking up Sunday morning thinking, what’s a great church I can go to today? Part of the problem is that for too long we’ve made church mostly about Christians doing spiritual stuff on Sundays. Of course, we love our Sundays, but we should be even more excited about our Mondays, because on those days God has positioned us in shop fronts, in salons, in classrooms, in playgroups, on building sites, and in boardrooms where we can engage with those who don’t yet know Him. Church must be less about us and more about others. We should be empowering Christians to act as Christ in their communities Monday through Saturday. That’s why Christians should be waking up on Mondays declaring, “Thank God it’s Monday!” In this thought-provoking book, Paul Bartlett encourages us that can have a huge influence in our community, across our town or city, and throughout the nation... and it starts on Monday.

We are so much more than we appear to be. The "why" of our existence is far more complex than the "how" of our being. Mysticism probes the hidden nature of who we are, why we are, and our relationship to our Creator. We catch glimpses of this not only in the ordinary experiences of life, but also through extraordinary and unusual encounters with mystery. Mysticism is the awareness of our reality.

During the American Civil War, disease and infection caused by poor medical care and lack of proper hygiene were the main causes of death to both Confederate and Union soldiers. Why, then, were there no adequate facilities to care for these men? That is the question Cordelia Harvey sought to answer. Join author Daniel L. Stika as he examines the work of Wisconsins Nightingale, Cordelia Harvey. As a tireless campaigner for improved medical care for Civil War soldiers, Harvey inspects battlefield hospitals and takes her reports of squalor and death all the way to the White House. Throughout the course of several meetings with President Abraham Lincoln, Harvey advocates for the construction of hospitals with the sole purpose of caring for the men who are fighting and dying for their country. Though Lincoln is reticent to hear her requests, Harveys fervor for her cause and her passionate arguments ultimately lead the president to make a decision that will save the lives of innumerable soldiers. When Lincoln Met Wisconsins Nightingale presents the life of an extraordinary woman who battled adversity and tragedy in her quest to provide care to those who needed it most.

This book provides the reader with a wide overview of the many vast roles within the nursing profession, showing that the responsibilities are complex, challenging and rewarding.
