Physics and Chemistry for Nurses

Uniform with the other volumes in the Putnam Library For Nurses
IN many States, Chemistry has been made a required subject for Registered Schools of Nursing. There are only one or two books on Chemistry for Nurses on the market and these take for granted that pupils have some knowledge of the subject. As a matter of fact, hardly twenty-five per cent. of the college graduates who enter Schools of Nursing have studied Chemistry and Physics. An important feature of this volume is that it includes not only elementary Chemistry but the Chemistry of cooking and cleaning, a point that receives much emphasis in teaching in all modern training schools. The material has been collected through a number of years of actual experience as a teacher, and a selection has been carefully made of only that portion which the author finds most useful in her classes as an assistance to the pupils in connection with their other studies.

Beginning with the earliest available records of sanitary codes which were built up into health religions, and coming down through the ages wherever the care and rescue of the sick can be traced, through the pagan civilizations, the early Christian works of mercy, the long and glorious history of the religious nursing orders, military nursing orders of the crusades, the secular communities of the later Middle Ages, and the revival of the Deaconess order which culminated in the modern revival under Miss Nightingale, this history is the most serious attempt yet made to collect the scattered records of the care of the sick and bring them all into one unified and sympathetic presentation.
The story is not told in a dry, technical fashion, but presents its pictures from the standpoint of general human interest in a subject which has always appealed to the sympathies of men.
The history is amply illustrated, and contains a copious bibliography of nursing and hospital history.

"The exceptional value of this volume may be traced, first, to the distinctively social, as well as medical, standpoint from which the author approaches the subject; and, second, to the sincere and earnest yet accurate and fair manner in which the author presents her material. Many astounding, but actual, facts which have not previously been generally available are here presented in regard to police and legislative fostering of the white slave traffic. . . .
"It is a hopeful sign of the times when dependable books on this subject, which is of such vast social importance, are written for popular reading and information.
"It is a book which every one should read."
