Hi everyone! I'm new to this website, but no doubt you'll see a lot more from me after tonight. I've been looking for a good, really in-depth website on the history of nursing. There seems to be a lot of them on the history of modern nursing i.e. from Florence Nightingale to present, but I'd really like to find out more about the pre-modern. If anyone can help me out with this, I'd be very grateful!

i was just looking at something yesterday. i don't know how indepth it goes, but it was about men in nursing since men were the first nurses. here is the link:

Thanks for help. Unfortunately I already found the site to which you're referring, and it just doesn't go into the kind of depth & detail I'm looking for. It is pretty interesting though, and some of the info has been very useful to me in writing my essay -- which is due tomorrow but far from finished!
Cheers & Thanks again
