We need to realize and affirm a view that “medicine” is one of the most difficult of arts. Compassion may provide the motive but knowledge is our only working power…. Surely we will not be satisfied with merely perpetuating methods and traditions; surely we should be more and more involved with creating them.
~M. Adelaide Nutting, Principal of the John Hopkins School of Nursing
