Nursing History and  future nursing practice.

It is said that hindsight is 20/20. The lessons of resilience, volunteerism, bravery , advocacy and innovations that we were exposed to through learning about our nursing history hold us in good stead for the future. It is very important for us as nurses to know and really understand how nursing stood the test of time and continues to be applauded as the most trusted/ respected profession. The article entitled American Nursing: Introduction to the past(n.d.) stated that nurses fill a wide variety of roles and work both independently and collaboratively across many different care systems. Education has played a major role in bringing us to where we are today and we are guided by the AACN Essentials of baccalaureate education for professional nursing.

In my own practice, I feel it is important to nurture and teach my new nurses as I lead by example and I am always open to conversation with staff about nursing, its history and my experiences in the past thirty plus years. Some of the best lessons are learned through experience and what I do, is share my experiences with those I work with. Over the years I have been privileged to witness my patient care technicians aspire to become nurses, today, there are three who are currently attending nursing school.

History has shown the progress made through the sheer resilience, bravery, advocacy, volunteerism and technological advances made by those before us. Although education is our best resource, organization is also very important ,through the years we have seen that a lot of good happens when nurses raise their collective voices because we are indeed that powerful and resourceful. According to D’Antonio, Connolly, Wall, Whelan & Fairman (2010), how we make history is through our practice, our education and our power struggle. Our current health care debate rests in its ability to remind us that practice and education are political entities. How we use history to understand our current situation and move forward remains our challenge and our opportunity ( p.1).
