Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Pflegewissenschaften, Note: 1.0, Katholische Fachhochschule Mainz, Veranstaltung: Theorien und Modelle der Pflege, 6 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In vorliegender Hausarbeit werde ich die Pflegetheorie von Florence Nightingale darstellen. Ich habe mich für dieses Thema interessiert, da mich die „Pionierin der modernen Krankenpflege“ Florence Nightingale bereits in der Ausbildung fasziniert hat. Um aufzuzeigen, wie der Werdegang der Florence Nightingale sich auf ihre Pflegetheorie auswirkte, stelle ich als erstes kurz ihre Biografie vor. Die Auswirkungen ihres Werdeganges auf ihre Pflegetheorie werde ich im Anschluss anhand der von ihr beschriebenen Elemente, dem zentralen Punkt ihrer Theorie, in ihrer ursprünglich, wie auch der heutigen Bedeutung umfassend darstellen. Auch den Einfluss auf die Position der Frau und der Pflege in der Gesellschaft und ihr Mitwirken bei der Gestaltung der Pflegeausbildung werde ich in dieser Hausarbeit aufzeigen. Abschließend werde ich die Auswirkungen ihres Lebens und Wirkens auf die Pflege beleuchten.

Florence Nightingale: An Introduction to Her Life and Family

Florence Nightingale: An Introduction to Her Life and Family introduces the Collected Works by giving an overview of Nightingale’s life and the faith that guided it and by outlining the main social reform concerns on which she worked from her “call to service’’ at age sixteen to old age. This volume reports correspondence (selected from the thousands of surviving letters) with her mother, father and sister and a wide extended family. There is material on Nightingale’s “domestic arrangements,’’ from recipes, cat care and relations with servants to her contributions to charities, church and social reform causes. Much new and original material comes to light, and a remarkably different portrait of Nightingale, one with a more nuanced view of her family relationships, emerges. The Series In the Collected Works of Florence Nightingale all the surviving writing of Florence Nightingale will be published, much of it for the first time. Known as the heroine of the Crimean War and the major founder of the modern profession of nursing, Florence Nightingale (1820-1910) will be revealed also as a scholar, theorist and social reformer of enormous scope and importance. Original material has been obtained from over 150 archives and private collections worldwide. This abundance of material will be reflected in the series, revealing a significant amount of new material on her philosophy, theology and personal spiritual journey, as well as on her vision of a public health care system, her activism to achieve the difficult early steps of nursing for the sick poor in workhouse infirmaries and her views on health promotion and women’s control over midwifery. Nightingale’s more than forty years of work for public health in India, particularly in famine prevention and for broader social reform, will be reported in detail. The Collected Works of Florence Nightingale demonstrates Nightingale’s astute use of the political process and reports on her extensive correspondence with royalty, viceroys, cabinet ministers and international leaders, including such notables as Queen Victoria and W. E. Gladstone. Much new material on Nightingale’s family is reported, including some that will challenge her standard portrayal in the secondary literature. Sixteen printed volumes are scheduled and will record her enormous and largely unpublished correspondence, previously published books, articles and pamphlets, many of which have long been out of print. There will be full publication in electronic form, permitting readers to easily pursue their particular interests. Extensive databases, notably a chronology and a names index, will also be published in electronic form, again permitting convenient access to persons interested not only in Nightingale but in other figures of the time.

This volume reports Nightingale's work to take trained nursing from its base at St. Thomas' Hospital in London to other hospitals in London, elsewhere in England, and into Wales, Scotland, and Ireland. It goes on to European countries (initially Sweden and Germany, later France and Italy), to Australia, the United States, Canada, and other countries of the then British Empire. Also featured is material on how Nightingale methods were taken up in Japan and China. This volume relates the difficulty of bringing trained nursing into the abysmal workhouse infirmaries, and it includes a section on the development of "district nursing", or nursing in the homes of the poor, as well as material on "health missioners", who taught better health practices at the homes of the rural poor. An appendix gives biographical sketches of major nursing leaders. "Extending Nursing" shows Nightingale promoting the core principles of nursing as a profession, independent of medicine, and providing well-paid career jobs for women. Here the case had to be made politically to a range of elected officials, hospital administrators, and health care reformers. At the same time, Nightingale had to attend to the health and safety of nurses (as well as patients), for hospitals continued to be dangerous places everywhere.

True or False? Florence Nightingale was the first woman nurse. False! Women had worked as nurses for years, but it was considered a miserable job. Few nurses in England had any medical training. Florence helped make nursing a respectable profession for women. She was in charge of nurses at British military hospitals in the Crimean War (1853-1856). She set up the Nightingale Training School for Nurses in London. She wrote more than 13,000 letters and 200 books and pamphlets during her life.

Volume 9: Florence Nightingale on Health in India is the first of two volumes reporting Nightingale’s forty years of work to improve public health in India. It begins with her work to establish the Royal Commission on the Sanitary State of the Army in India, for which she drafted questionnaires, analyzed returns, and did much of the final writing, going on to promote the implementation of its recommendations. In this volume a gradual shift of attention can be seen from the health of the army to that of the civilian population. Famine and epidemics were frequent and closely interrelated occurrences. To combat them, Nightingale recommended a comprehensive set of sanitary measures, and educational and legal reforms, to be overseen by a public health agency. Skilful in implementing the expertise, influence, and power of others, she worked with her impressive network of well-placed collaborators, having them send her information and meet with her back in London. The volume includes Nightingale’s work on the royal commission itself, related correspondence, numerous published pamphlets, articles and letters to the editor, and correspondence with her growing network of viceroys, governors of presidencies, and public health experts. Working with British collaborators, she began this work; over time Nightingale increased her contact with Indian nationals and promoted their work and associations. Currently, Volumes 1 to 11 are available in e-book version by subscription or from university and college libraries through the following vendors: Canadian Electronic Library, Ebrary, MyiLibrary, and Netlibrary.

This seventh volume in the Collected Works of Florence Nightingale consists of letters, observations, and notes from Florence Nightingale’s many trips to Europe, beginning with a family journey when she was a teenager. It includes annotations she made on opera libretti from her “music mad” phase and her winter in Rome (1847-48) which were so important in shaping her liberal politics and support for independence movements. Her letters and notes from Greece and central Europe in 1850, and her Kaisers- werth stay in 1851, reveal her developing ideas on social reform, as well as her first professional training. Materials from 1853 provide information on her training in Paris hospitals. Volume 7 also contains letters and observations from her excursions to Scotland, Ireland, and all over England, from her childhood on. Many of the letters in European Travels were uncatalogued items buried in archives and will be new to Nightingale scholars. The information gathered in this volume adds considerably to what can be learned about the formative influences in Nightingale’s life, politics, and faith. Currently, Volumes 1 to 11 are available in e-book version by subscription or from university and college libraries through the following vendors: Canadian Electronic Library, Ebrary, MyiLibrary, and Netlibrary.
