The Vocation of Nursing – Una O’Doherty
Soul Waves Radio has come to the end of its journey. It’s been a very interesting and exciting time and we were glad to share so many interviews with you. We will be publishing pieces from the archive, until the archive moves to Jesuit.ie and then you will be able to access them there. We thank you for all the support you gave us over the years.
In this piece from the archive we hear from Una O’Doherty, a former nurse, who firmly believes that nursing is a calling and that Florence Nightingale and Louise de Mariac, the founder of the Sisters of Charity, are largely responsible for the ethos of care enshrined in nursing. Eileen Good asked her about patient care and if she believed that nursing is a vocation.
