“The book is sure to reignite a passion for nursing in nurses who may be bogged down in their daily work of nursing practice, education, and/or research. Nurses across the globe are universally grateful for the pathway Nightingale paved for them. In addition, the book is an inspiration to anyone working toward social change, as Nightingale sets a powerful example about the outcome of positive persistence for the common good. There are numerous other published versions of Notes on Nursing, but this one stands  apart from those given its commemorative nature.”—Martha Scheckel, PhD, RN for Doody’s Book Review Service
