Nightingale’s Legacy: The Evolution of American Nurse Leaders shows “the nurses of today” how to leverage the wisdom of the icons of nursing to inform their own daily work and fuel the future of nursing.

The book examines the pivotal historical achievements of 20 prominent nurse leaders from Florence Nightingale’s time to the present. Included in this must-have text are lessons on patient-centered care, legislative advocacy, innovation, record-keeping, cultural diversity, and education. Nightingale’s Legacy: The Evolution of American Nurse Leaders dissects the crucial challenges that nurses have faced and conquered over the span of 155 years.

More importantly, the book showcases how you can best use these achievements in your own practice.

Nightingale’s Legacy: The Evolution of American Nurse Leaders does what no other book has done before by chronicling how past and present nurse leaders continue to advance Nightingale’s legacy by:

  • Launching new medical practices and technologies.
  • Providing care and support for soldiers and families.
  • Challenging discrimination in nursing.
  • Lobbying to influence health care legislation.
  • And so much more!
