Florence Nightingale Give-A-Way!

We know Florence Nightingale best as the founder of modern nursing but Barbara Dossy, author of Florence Nightingale: Mystic, Visionary, Healer, suggests that is only one side of her many faceted life. Dossy does a fantastic job at illustrating Nightingale’s magnificent legacy. Here are some of our favorite quotes from the book:

“Nightingale’s vision has inspired me in a deeper, richer and more compassionate view of nursing than I had ever conceived. I believe this awareness is valuable not only for nurses, but for anyone who has ever been drawn to ease the pain and suffering of another.”

“By her uncompromising, shining example, she invites each of us to find our meaning and purpose in our own individual journey through life.”

“May Florence Nightingale change your life, as she has mine.”

-Barbara Dossey
