Nurse: Past, Present and Future: The Making of Modern Nursing examines the culture of nursing on all levels, from its historical development to its status today. The book highlights the power and value of  nurses worldwide, and traces the evolution of nursing as a career.

Nurse: Past, Present and Future discusses the importance of nursing to economics across the world, the impact of nurse migration patterns. The book traces the evolution of the nurse’s social standing,  appearance, education and skill set, and examines some of the key debates now underway. These are put into context with a look at how nursing has progressed through the twentieth century in response to changes in medicine and society.

Includes essays from key figures in nursing and first hand accounts from nurses working today. Thoroughly illustrated, comprehensive and global in scope, Nurse is the first book of its kind, dedicated to the past, present and future of the culture of nursing.
