Herbal Diplomats

  • Herbal Diplomats is a lost history of American nursing leadership during the decades 1830-1860 with its major social changes, populism, pandemics, and healthcare reforms. An award-winning history by Dr. Martha Libster that features the professional nurse pioneers of the Shaker, Sisters of Charity, and Latter-day Saints Mormon communities, this history predates the introduction of Florence Nightingale's training model in 1873. This inspirational book captures the identity and spirit that is the essence of American nursing.
