With contributions from some of the most renowned nursing scholars and historians, the real-life history of how nurses worked and how they endured the ever-changing economic, social, educational, and technological milieus is presented in a captivating collection of articles

Through time and place, experts chronicle the rich variety of nurses' work by presenting actual accounts of clinical practice experiences. Tracing the evolution of nursing from the role as family caregiver to roles in clinical practice today, the contributors approach this history by focusing on four thematic categories:
* Who does the work of nursing?
* Who pays for the work of nursing?
* What is the real work of nursing?
* How have our nursing predecessors struggled with the relationship between work and knowledge?

Nurses' Work, provides an incredible collection of significant historical scholarship and contemporary themes that encourages us to understand and think these questions and the future of nursing.
