Style we love: Pediatric nurses

Oh, the nursing cap! We never can quite get over the nostalgia. Inspired by this image – here’s a bit of pediatric nursing history:





The first pediatric nursing text wasn’t published until 1923. However, Florence Nightingale emphasized the importance of pediatric care:

“It is the real test of a nurse whether she can nurse a sick infant.”—  (Nightingale, 1859).

Are you a peds nurse? What’s your favorite part of the job?

      No I am not sorry that I don’t have to wear a cap. But it is a choice. I work with some nurses who wear theirs. I have been a nurse for 30 years in oncology. Let’s see the male nurses wear a cap.
