fm7Contributors fm9Foreword
The challenge of becoming a nurse has always been a considerable one. The work is often difficult emotionally and at times extremely hard physically. Over the years, nursing evolved through many forms and in recent years, it has become technically based and scientifically challenging.
Human beings are goal-directed creatures constantly striving for meaning, significances and purposes. We all need a role for something to work towards, to give us a sense of value and control. The authors of this book have used their clinical teaching, management and research expertise to bring out the contemporary and innovative thoughts practiced in Indian Nursing Institutes, Hospitals, and at the Department of Nursing, Ministry of Health, Sultanate of Oman. However, to implement the standard practices, the authors observed how to get new innovative thoughts into mind and how to get the old ones out.
I recommend this book to be used for the entire nursing program and should be on the book shelf of every student and practicing nurse today.
I congratulate the authors who brought together the most important ideas from the old and new A to Z Guideline Manual in Nursing Performance Evaluation Tool together.

A to Z Guideline Manual in Nursing Performance Evaluation Tool has been designed in many areas to explain the key steps which are necessary to perform nursing skills and provide cues to the critical thinking needed for client care.
The basics of nursing education depend on theory and clinical exposure. The quality of nursing education is only gained through theory and clinical experience. Nurse educators have the greater responsibilities to develop psychomotor and technical skills with the learner. If the theory and clinical experiences are systematically planned, organized and adhering to the criteria of evaluation, only then we can expect nursing care skills are imparted to the learner. The nursing educational institutes play a vital role in developing criteria for evaluating performance of learner and teacher.
In order to develop and provide high quality of care, it is necessary to develop appropriate standard of care and appropriate evaluation tool. Setting up standard is the first step in the evaluation process.
Two distinctive features of this book are the activities which one can get involved with, and evaluation of clinical practice behavior of learner at the desired level of performance.

fm23Florence Nightingale and Nursing
Florence Nightingale can hardly be considered a product of her time, since she was far ahead of and beyond it, but she found the time ripe for her genius as the founder of modern trained nursing.
While she was still little girl, she showed her kindness of heart and her wish to be helpful by nursing sick animals. At the age of nine, she often expressed a wish to be useful to sick persons. When she was in her teens, she visited among the sick poor of her neighborhood and did what she could do for them. Among her relatives, she was ready and competent.
Her Wish to be a Nurse
Soon after she was twenty, she asked her parents to permit her to go into a hospital and learn to be a nurse, so that she might care for the poor people of her own neighborhood. They knew something of the dreadful conditions existing in hospitals and could not bring their mind to the thought of their daughter doing such a thing. She would not go without their consent, and the situation grieved her greatly. She believed that an earnest life must express itself in work for humanity, and that “the service of man is the service of God”. She longed for the chance to be helpful in a large way. She was always deeply religious. She once told her sister, “I look to thirty as the age when our savior took up his work. I am trying to prepare myself to follow in his foot-steps when I am as old as he was”.
