From the Paper:

"When the average person is asked to think of trendsetting nurses, who helped usher in the era of modern medicine, they can generally only name one: Florence Nightingale. However, the reality is that, while Nightingale's work was undeniably important, other groundbreaking nurses played critical roles in the development of modern medicine, whether by introducing new standards of patient care, emphasizing the importance of education in the life of a nurse, or establishing some type of program to assist nurses. Isabel Hampton Robb is noteworthy, not because she did a single one of these groundbreaking things, but because she did all of those things. Not only did she do all of those things, but she was passionate about the career of nursing. While she believed that there had been tremendous advancements in the field, she asked her fellow nurses, "with progress going on in every branch around us, are we alone to stand still?" (Hampton, 1894)."
