BEST QUOTES

“And what nursing has to do in either case, is to put the patient in the best condition for nature to act upon him…”

“It is often thought that medicine is the curative process. It is no such thing; medicine is the surgery of functions, as surgery proper is that of limbs and organs. Neither can do anything but remove obstructions; neither can cure; nature alone cures. Surgery removes the bullet out of the limb, which is an obstruction to cure, but nature heals the wound. So it is with medicine; the function of an organ becomes obstructed; medicine so far as we know, assists nature to remove the obstruction, but does nothing more. And what nursing has to do in either case, is to put the patient in the best condition for nature to act upon him.” — Florence Nightingale

FROM THE OR TO DATE NIGHT! Check out this Classic Cut

The bob is a classic hairstyle that can go from the operating room to the monthly PTA meeting while still being ideal for a night out on the town. Its versatility makes it perfect for nurses. It is easy to style and holds that style well, says Crystal Layne, hairstylist and owner of cL Salon in Tuscaloosa, Ala. It can be tucked behind the ears to get out of your face. The hair can be pushed up under a hat and it will still look good when the hat comes off. It is a popular style that has stood the test of time.
