I think Florence would be proud of her efforts despite the numerous challenges that seem unsurmountable. She would be proud that she was one woman that advocated for strict precautions designed to kill the germs that was ravaging the lives of many. Infection control will always be firmly rooted in the healthcare system in preventing the spread of diseases as this was her recognition. I also think that she would also appreciate the leaders that came after her and champion the course of the advancement of nursing. She would be proud of the evidence based practice that emanated from her using pie chart and other data to improve patient outcomes.

Thank you so much. If there is one major contribution that Florence made was to support the prevention of infection through handwashing and a clean environment. This is the first thing taught in nursing school and is relevant to today.

I believe Florence Nightingale would be proud. Although I doubt she’d be in the trenches as a practicing Nurse. With

her ability of systemic data collection, analysis and implementation of evidence practice, she was a head of her time. In our time I believe she would be considered one of the great minds of all time. I’ve learned she developed her own survey instruments that she wanted other experts evaluate and pretested and validate their accuracy.(McDonald 2001). She was early pioneer in the graphical presentation of data, She was using color coded bar and pie charts. which were coded to highlight key points. She not only tried to get the science right but also to make it where lay people, could understand what the data and science meant. This was especially significant and important when she presented her data to politicians and senior civil servants who made and administered the laws. (McDonald 2001) This was brilliant use of the data and her talent.

Great points. Florence was ahead of her time and was advanced in her thinking compared to what was permitted of women during her life time. I think she would absolutely be looking a data and trend and supporting nursing research. Thanks for your post.

With the advancement in the nursing compared to what it was in the past, Florence Nightingale would be proud because she played a major role in promoting nursing. She was the reason that we helped us understand that it is very important to prevent the spread of infection. She would also be happy because of the respect the nurses are getting from the public, which was not the case back in her time, where people considered nursing to be a profession only if they didn’t have any other career.

Florence definitely still impacts our infection control practices today. I think that has been perhaps one of her biggest contributions Florence made, and there were many, infection control has saved uncountable lives.

Dorothea Orem’s self-care deficit theory is a notable contribution to nursing practice, and I am keen to understand how she developed this theory and refined her ideas over time. I know that a conversation with Orem would be a great opportunity to gain insights into her experience as a nurse and how it influenced her theoretical work. My main goal in speaking with Orem would be to improve my patient care by helping them achieve better self-care. Orem’s work on self-care has had a significant and lasting impact on nursing theory, and speaking with her could provide valuable insights into how nursing theory is developed and applied in practice. By understanding the development of her self-care deficit theory, I can better understand how to apply this theory to my own work as a nurse. Furthermore, I am interested in learning more about the challenges that Orem faced when developing her theory and how she overcame them. I would also like to know how Orem’s self-care deficit theory has been received by the nursing community and how it has influenced nursing practice over time. Additionally, I would like to ask Orem about the relationship between patient empowerment and self-care, and how nurses can encourage patients to take an active role in their own care. This would help me to better engage with my patients and support them in achieving better outcomes. Overall, a conversation with Dorothea Orem would be a valuable opportunity to gain insights into nursing theory and its practical applications. It would help me to improve my patient care and to better understand the relationship between patients and their ability to care for themselves. Orem’s work has had a lasting impact on the field of nursing, and I am excited to learn more about her experiences and insights.

A notable nurse that I would want to sit down and talk to is Dr. Ildaura Murillo- Rhode, PhD, RN, FAAN who was a pioneer of nursing for the hispanic community. Like many of us Latinos she immigrated from Panama and saw the need for education because of the lack of Hispanic nurses in her community in Texas (NAHN). She knew the importance of higher education in nursing and her vision was to assist other Latinas in the community to help themselves through higher education (NAHN). She was a pioneer in the founding of National Association of Hispanic Nurses, she was a professor, and contributor to UNICEF. She was a key leader for hispanic nurses to pursue higher educate and helped secure federal grants (NAHN).

Not only is she a pioneer for nurses but she is a women women who wanted Latinas like her to help themselves. I admire women who want to see other women succeed. What part your career was the most challenging? was is string NAHN or being the only Hispanic women in Washington lobbying for your community and profession? And what helped you pull forward.

 

I think that she had so many challenges in life along with so many accomplishments. Knowing how she persisted would help me have motivation in continuing my education in nursing. I think she is a motivational person who lived selfishly and gave a lot to her profession and to her community.
