  1. This is a interesting article. Thank you Sue for your excellent, well-crafted blogs.

    My thoughts…..

    Jesus changed everything. He taught us to love and care for each other even when it might put us at great risk.

    I believe that God gives each nurse the head, heart, and hands needed to show His love.

    Maybe Mary and Martha were the first nurses. Feeding, comforting, washing, and where appropriate, sharing our faith in God were all demonstrated by these two woman. That is why many of us are taught to see Jesus in every patient.

    As a nurse, I thank God for giving me the opportunity to experience these gifts.

    Yes, Jesus really did change everything.

  2. So that’s where that mask came from! My cousin and his friends have been sharing it on Facebook and I’ve been in the dark. Very interesting post! I wondered who they used as nurses? Was it nuns and religious sisters, or did they have any formal nursing training for lay people who wanted to help?

    • Good question, Pat. My guess is it was Christians who just felt called to help, but I could be wrong. An excuse to read even more! I’ll post when I find out.

  3. Thank you, Susan, for being a voracious reader. I learn so much by reading your snippets of “book reports” like this one. And your writing is so easy to read. I like to read your articles early in the morning, during breakfast after my devotions. May God bless your ministry of communication – you truly are planting His seeds in all of us!

  4. Wow! And here we thought Florence Nightingale started it all during the Crimean War! I have to admit, I had no idea the concept of hospitals had started so early. Thank heaven (literally!) for Jesus and his emphasis on mercy toward our fellow man!

    We do have to give Flo her due, as she was influential in setting the standards used by nurses. Caregivers previously had been considered as no more than trollops, and as we know, the professionalization of nursing has been a long time coming.

  5. Sue, first of all HAPPY NURSE’S WEEK/DAY!!! You are one of the best!! Of course, I enjoyed your article. It was very interesting.

    • Thanks, Ade. Not to mention your organizational skills in the office that made us nurses able to function more efficiently.
