The poems in A History of Nursing combine the professional life of a woman
in the healing arts with the other aspects of her life. Just as she can
never stop being the child of her parents, and adult woman, or a mother, a
life in nursing colors everything she does and feels. When the nurse
becomes a critically ill patient, all of those elements fuse, making her
understand the impact she, as a nurse, has had on others.
