Week 2

This week I read about nursing in the Middle Ages. Nursing was an under appreciated profession at that time. Those who were nurses were generally also drunk, immoral, illiterate, and/or prostitutes. Women lost the authority over nursing as men took it over. Nursing didn’t progress while the medical profession continued to advance. I think the best thing that came out of that era was the word nurse stemmed from the word sister. I love that it gives a kinship towards others and shows the relationship nurses have with their patients.
