I enjoyed learned about her and how she encouraged women to become nurses around the world.  Learning about Jane and seeing how I have grown as a nurse myself was very interesting.  Jane had the reputation to use her innovative ways to take care of ailments.  Such as by reading about her I learned that she was taking care of patients with yellow fever and figured out a way to slow the spread.  Before scientist even knew that mosquitos were carrying the disease, she put nets over the windows and patient areas, which became efficient, proving that nursing is both a science and art.  I also enjoyed learning how she was a teacher before a nurse.  …….please click the purchase button to access the entire discussion at $5
