A History of Nursing
A History of Nursing

A History of Nursing explores the history of nursing by investigating the earliest records of the caring profession, how it progressed and what established it along the way to becoming the nursing we see today. It starts at the beginning of the story –  how, once upon a time, all we had to depend on was Mother Nature.

Over time, education and standards improved for the safety, development and governance of the profession. Not everything was plain sailing and the book introduces lesser-known people who made this possible, sometimes at great cost to themselves, and the effect military nursing had on the nineteenth century in turning nursing from religious principles to the secular standards we see today.

How did nursing go from being knowledge handed down through ancient scripts, folklore and sometimes by accident, to the degree-level, accountable practice of modern times? And why do nurses not wear hats anymore? A History of Nursing answers all these questions and more.

Confessions of a Male Nurse

From stampeding nudes to inebriated teenagers, Michael Alexander never knew what he was getting himself into. But now, sixteen years since he first launched into his nursing career – as the only man on a gynaecology ward – he’s pretty much had to deal with everything…

Body parts that came off in his hands.

Teenagers with phantom pregnancies.

Doctors unable to tell the difference between their left and right.

Violent drunks.

Singing relatives.

Sexism.

… and more nudity than the sex industry.
