There were very few women nurses at the begining of the civil war. The time that most women became nurses was after the north and south needed all men to fight instead of being nurses. Then when the draft was created there would have been more women nurses apposed to having more male nurses because …both the north and the south needed the man power to fight. Women had taken over the profession of being a nurse by the end of the war. ( Full Answer )

It depends on what supplies they have. Sometimes they sleep on cots or even on the floor. They can take sacks and huddle inside them. You just never know.
During most of the war, during the warm months they slept on theground. The warm months, from about April to December, were"campaigning season", and the armies would maneuver and fightbattles. This meant the soldiers frequently walked or fought allday. If a battle lasted several days they "slept on …the field", asbest they could, amidst the dead and the wounded, who frequentlyscreamed until they too died. Many men would spend the night,searching, shining the light of a borrowed lantern into the facesof the fallen, looking for missing friends or relatives. Sleepingon the battlefield was also called "sleeping on our arms", armsbeing weapons. The point was to be ready to resume the fight assoon as it was light enough to see. Men were often so exhausted bythe exertions of marching and fighting that they did manage tosleep on the battlefield, despite the horrors. Many men went off to war in the first months with a ridiculousamount of equipment. Often this included tents and camp cots. Asthe action heated up and moving became more common, and needed tobe done quickly, men soon learned they had to discard most of thisparaphernalia, whether reluctantly or gladly. One day the tentswould be loaded in a quartermaster wagon and driven off, and theymight not ever see them again, or if they did, it would be when thearmies went into "winter quarters" to ride out the cold monthsbefore campaigning season came again. By 1862 most soldiers weredown to their rifle, bayonet, cap box (for percussion caps to makethe rifle go off when the trigger was pulled), and their fortyrounds of ammunition (40 "bullets"), which was what most menusually were issued. If heavy fighting was expected, they might beissued sixty. Some men had a cartridge box, worn on the belt likethe cap box, to hold this ammunition. If they had no cartridge boxthey distributed it in their pockets. They carried a rucksack,slung on a strap over one shoulder, to carry food in and any fewpersonal items they were still trying to keep with them. And theyhad a blanket roll. This was one blanket, sometimes two if thesoldier was lucky, and if he was very fortunate an oilcloth thesame size as the blankets. You put the oilcloth on the ground tokeep out moisture. You might get with a buddy, if everybody justhad one blanket, and use one blanket over the oilcloth (or on theground it they had no oilcloth) and one to cover up with. There wasnothing sexual about this. People at home and even in hotels sleptas many to a bed as could fit, and in hotels these would bestrangers. In the morning the soldiers rolled up their blanket(s)(and oilcloth, if any) from the foot until they had just a longroll, then folded that in the middle and tied the two ends togetherwith a piece of string. They put this over the other shoulder fromtheir rucksack, and they were packed and ready to go. ( Full Answer )

Nurses went to war to comfort any soldiers who got shot or hurt during the war.
Civil war nurses did not have very advanced tech. so they used only a few tools.. they used multiple sizes of amputation knives. they also used bullet pliers and needles. Nurses didnt have much access to water or disenfectants, so they typically didnt clean their tools. they slept covered in bloo…d on the floor, and didnt bathe for weeks. despite these conditions almost 75% of amputees survived.. Anesthesia was just coming out and there was a limited supply, so nurses used whiskey or nothing at all. sometimes during amputation they would have the man bite down on a cloth to avoid him biting off his tongue or screaming loudly.

Yes, there were nurses that served during the American Revolutionary War. They were enlisted into the Army. Some are notable for their courageous efforts. Including Elizabeth Hutchison Jackson the mother of President Andrew Jackson.
No they did not, it was not until after the Korean War the men could be enlisted/drafted as nurse. Oddly enough the American Army drafted male Registered Nurse but gave them enlisted positions as corps men.

Not usually. A doctor's bag included various saws for cutting through bone and tissue, and big clippers, the lot looking more like yard tools and hacksaws. It took a strong man to saw through a limb quickly, in the approved fashion. Many Civil War nurses were male, often soldiers recovering from the…ir own wounds, or sickness. ( Full Answer )

Division), Bi…en Phuc (I Corps, 101st Airborne (Airmobile) Division), Chu Lai (I Corps, Americal Division), etc. Men wounded in the field were taken care of by medics on the battlefield; from there they were walked, driven, or flown to a positioned larger force (Company/Troop, Battalion, Brigade, etc.) for further treatment. From there they might be flown or ground transported to a nearby firebase, from there or skipping the firebase (they were for firing cannons not medical treatment), straight on to the BIG BASES where all the females nurses were located. Treatment at the BIG bases was the latest in military medical technology; extremely seriously wounded men (death imminent) had to be airlifted to "the world" ASAP. ( Full Answer )
they felt that women's were too delicate for such work and men disproved because of women doing what was considered men's work. To be honest, I don't believe men would disapprove of women saving their life. Unless, the were sexist.
Basedd on my experienes in Eleuthera, Bahamas, nurse sharks actually do nap, breathing regularly and without moving, which most shaks cannot do; they have to be moving to get enough water through their gills. Nurses can breathe stationary because they can pum water through their mouth and out their …gills. Nurse sharks generally dont have a sleep period like we do, they dont have a long period of REM sleep, which is when you are in a deep sleep state. Nurse sharks generally nap for around an average of 1 hour, but sometimes 2, and 3 hours as well. Nurse sharks will nap either on the sea floor (in my case, in a small bay area, 20 feet deep) or in their shallow nests. Nurse sharks are generally nocturnal animals, which is why the often nap in the day. ( Full Answer )
Nurses are the backbone of medical care. The doctors do not care for patients 24 hours a day, the nurses do that. The RNs are also the surgical assistants. They also provide on site trauma care before the injured warriors can get to the hospital or surgery sites. Without the nurses the injured would… not survive. ( Full Answer )

Women and children just slept in a normal home in a bed. Union soldiers had a cotton tent that can fit 1-4 men and usually had blankets to keep them warm. South had pretty much the same except they didn't have a blanket and had less supplies.
Pretty bloody. Many wounds were in arms and legs. To save a man's life they were amputated. There are reports of piles of arms and legs outside the medical tent or area. There was no pain killers and many men died in agony with infections or bleeding to death. A nurse would have to help hold the man… down while the arm or leg was sawed off. ( Full Answer )
harriet had so much care for freedom that she risked her life forit.that is how much harriet cared about freedom.
No. Many units started out with tents, frequently big ones that could sleep eight men or so. But these had to be hauled in wagons when the unit moved, and after 1862 the wagons were seldom seen, and neither were the tents, plates, pots and pans they carried. Northern soldiers were issued the two man… tents, since known as "pup tents", but they soon tired of carrying them too. Most soldiers wound up with a "blanket roll" - one or two blankets, plus a blanket-sized oilcloth. You'd put the oil cloth next to the ground, a blanket on top of that (if you had two), and cover up with the other blanket. Often men slept with one another to share blankets - there was nothing sexual about it. In the morning you'd stack all the blankets together and roll them up, then fold the roll over in the middle and tie the ends together with a piece of string, and drape them over one shoulder, and you were ready to go. During the winter active campaigning usually ceased, and the armies would "go into winter quarters", and the men would maybe see tents again, or build log huts. Sometimes they'd go up about three feet with logs and put a tent on top of that, so they could stand up inside. It was a very, very rugged life, and many men got sick and died. On both sides, two men died for every one the enemy killed. ( Full Answer )
