The Evolution of Nursing

Challenging social norms and justifying the value of education, Florence Nightengale is credited with what we today know as modern nursing. However, nursing is as old as mankind since people have always needed nursing when they fall ill or become wounded. And as we discuss in this episode, nursing has undergone many transitions since Florence’s days, with the demands of research and technology advancements requiring much, much more from today’s nursing professional.
