‘Human health care’, a motto suggesting the need for a vocation to be a nurse, has been attributed to Florence Nightingale (1820-1910). She is considered to be the founder of modern nursing, due in great part to her incredible devotion to her patients. Her book ‘Notes on nursing’ – which first appeared in 1860 – is still considered an important reference work in nursing schools. For more information on the life and work of Florence Nightingale, see, for example, Bostridge (2008).
