Background: Nightingale’s Theories were developed before germ theory was widely accepted.She was from a wealthy English family but chose to care for the sick. As a young nursing leadershe was asked to help British soldiers during wartime. There she observed the terrible conditionsand began developing her disease management theory. She was very religious, basing her careElting NUR 620 Spring 2022 2NUR 620 Discussion Board #2Grand Theoryon her faith, and so believed everyone deserved civilized care. She was a government healthstatistician and assisted with the public health system development. She founded the NightingaleSchool for Nurses at St. Thomas’ Hospital.2. Philosophical Underpinnings of the Theory: She was focused on healing and how leadership andglobal action are required to promote health. She believed only women had the righttemperament and virtuous nature to be nurses. She was very strict in the enforcement of herpolicies of care and cleanliness. She believed nurses have their own practice but followedphysicians’ prescriptions faithfully. Her educational theory/model is based on anticipating andmeeting the needs of patients and how excellent nursing practice can meet those needs.3. Major Assumptions, Concepts, and Relationships: Her theory includes the nursing metaparadigmconcepts humans, environment, health, and nursing even though this wasn’t proposed yet.Essential for a healthy environment were pure air and water, efficient sewage drainage, minimalnoise, ample light, nutritious food, proper beds and bedding, personal cleanliness, and socialcontact. Buildings should be constructed to let in lots of light and fresh air. Nursing care wasneeded to meet these needs and delivered where patients lived and in the hospital setting.Management of care makes a difference in healing the sick and people who were in contact withthem.4. Usefulness: Nightingale influenced hospitals, community health, nursing practice and educationbefore other theories were in use.Nightingale’s work can still be applied today when nursesexamine the needs of patients and the environment. Examples in the book talk about chronic andinfectious disease. Right now, it applies to Covid-19 with fresh air, light, minimizing contact withother people when sick, but also looking at buildings and public transportation and air circulation.5. Value in Extending Nursing Science: She was a consultant and health statistician whose writingsand theories advanced healthcare and nursing. She was deeply involved in nursing educationand promoting the science of public health, hospital administration, community health, and globalhealth.McEwen, M., & Wills, E. M. (2019). Theoretical basis for nursing (5th ed.), Wolters Kluwer Health.Example of a Peer Response Discussion Post with APAHi Andrew,I understand now that Nightingale had both a disease management theory and a nursing education theory. I neverreally thought about how the two were separate, but really about the same thing taking care of patients (McEwen& Wills, 2019). Since I graduated in December 2019 I haven’t been able to get a nursing job that I wanted. So Ihave been working in vaccine clinics and Covid-19 testing centers. When I do teaching I am totally usingNightingale’s disease management theory about cleanliness, fresh air and circulation, and preventing transmission(getting or spreading Covid) at home and out in public.
