Nurs Forum. 1993 Apr-Jun;28(2):19-24


ABSTRACT

Modern nursing and healthcare delivery are examined from a unique vantage point provided by the author's visit to Scutari, Turkey. In Selimiye Army Barracks at Scutari, Florence Nightingale lived while directing the care of thousands of wounded British soldiers during the Crimean War. What was Nightingale's legacy to nursing, and what have nurses done with it? If Miss Nightingale were at her desk reading a status report on 20th-century nursing, what reactions would she have? What wars are engaging contemporary nursing? The author contends that Nightingale's vision can inspire us to move forward as a profession.
