Be inspired by the timeless insights of the woman who created the foundations of modern nursing, with Florence Nightingale’s Notes On Nursing, the 160th Anniversary Edition.
 
Supported by essays from modern-day nurses, this still-relevant work offers concise, on-the-ground experience and breakthrough insights into the crucial elements of patient care. Each chapter brings to life Nightingale’s determination to advance the healthcare system of her time, empowering modern nursing professionals, educators, and students of all levels to establish their own crucial findings and innovations.

Power up your professional commitment by diving into Nightingale’s bravery and groundbreaking vision:
 
  • Foundational findings and instruction on the importance of adequate room ventilation, management of the patient’s environment, what it means to be in charge as a nurse, patient observation, nutrition, appropriate lighting, and cleanliness of beds and rooms
  • Seasoned guidance and reflections on Nightingale’s writings from experienced nurses, nurse educators, and professional development practitioners, including:
    • The palliative care perspective
    • Advanced nursing practice and midwifery
    • The influence of the nurse on patient emotional state and overall well-being
    • Professional identity and inspiration
    • A tribute to Notes on Nursing
    • Preparing to be a nurse educator
    • Issues ranging from bedsores to global health care
  • Discusses illness as the result but not always the cause of disease—elucidates the nursing role in understanding both disease and health, and in educating patients and public on health education basics
  • Offers Nightingale’s principles of health—her holistic viewpoint and understanding of how sickroom environment, patient mindset, and patient inner mental/emotional struggles affect health and recovery
  • Emphasizes the importance of assisting in patient well-being on all levels of health and well-being
  • Perfectly supports the current emphasis on research and evidence-based practice by using data to support arguments for offering compassionate, quality care—illuminates all levels of nursing practice, education, and research

General Information
 
When you buy this book from the Physio Shop you are in fact dealing directly with one of the world's largest medical publishers, Wolters Kluver Health (WKH). WKH is the parent of companies including Lippincott, Williams and Wilkins and the Anatomical Chart Company.
 
We also try to deliver to you anywhere in the world. Just register and login to the shop to see the shipping price to your destination. These costs are heavily subsidized by the publishers. Unfortunately we are restricted to non-USA sales.
 
We work directly with WKH and their distribution channel in the UK, NBN International, to deliver your items. This means there is no middle-man to slow up your delivery. If it is in print/stock and is in their warehouse then they'll get it out to you asap. Your orders are sent directly to the warehouse and are actioned usually within 48hrs during the working week. Sometimes charts and models are on regular re-stocking due to popularity however this is replenished on a weekly basis.
 
If any one item in your purchase is delayed NBN will typically send you what they have in stock and will send on the remainder as soon as it arrives. This is at no additional shipping costs to you. Sending and arriving are however two different things. We send as soon as we can. The mail man and delivery services mean orders can take anything from 48hrs to 3 weeks to arrive depending where in the world you are.
 
Even better, we currently maintain a flat fee structure for shipping of products from WKH. Buy as many books as you like the we will still charge you the one shipping fee. Perhaps club together with friends if you are after the same title to save even more on shipping!
 
All orders are actioned from the UK. The UK and Europe can therefore expect more speedy deliveries than those further afield. Rest assured we'll get it to you as fast as the mailing systems allow.
 
You are also provided with a direct email and phone link on your order invoice that will link you with the person/s responsible for your delivery should you have any queries after purchase.
 
Many thanks for choosing the Physio Shop and happy reading!
