FOUNDER OF MODERN NURSING
It is believed that the founder of modern nursing was FLORENCE NIGHTINGALE. Nursing is an act, and if it is to be made an art, it requires an exclusive devotion. As any painter’s sculptor’s work; for what is this having to do with dead canvas or cold marble compared with having to do with the living body the temple of God’s spirit ? It is one of the finest arts : I had almost said the finest of the fine arts : the nursing.
