"Cutler's Pediatrics for Nurses" was first published in 1923, and ever since has been widely used by graduate and undergraduate students of nursing in several countries.

The original book was written by Bessie Cutler, R.N., former instructor in pediatric nursing and supervisor of the pediatric department, University of Minnesota, later on the staffs of the Children's Hospital and Massachusetts Hospital, Boston, and of the Children's Hospital, St. Louis. It now appears as "Pediatric Nursing," having been thoroughly revised and rewritten by Elizabeth Pierce, R.N., superintendent of the Children's Hospital in Cincinnati, and M. Rorinne Bancroft, R.N., B.S., director of nursing, Children's Hospital, Cincinnati. The authors acknowledge their indebtedness to many noted physicians, nurses and welfare workers for their helpful criticism and suggestions.

With the thought "of all created things, the loveliest and most divine are children," Cutler, Pierce and Bancroft have affectionately dedicated their book to children.
