Florence Nightingale influenced a social movement that impacted the development of professional nursing in the U.S. In 19th century before Florence Nightingale’s time, families and friends cared for their loved ones at home and there were untrained and uneducated women who worked in the hospitals. But Florence Nightingale changed all the chaos and improved hospital settings. Due to her passion of nursing, Florence Nightingale changed the condition of the health care systems and instituted nursing as a respected profession. She structured nursing schools for nurses as to become respected professionals.
And also last month I had the opportunity to shadow a second year student working her patient Barbra. I loved her entire attitude and interaction with her patient. Barbra herself told me she preferred coming to the clinic instead of going to her dentist. It was mainly based on a making the patient feel comfortable with forming a professional relationship that encourage a welcoming place for a patient like Barbra, who needed a deep cleaning according to her dentist. I am planning on doing more shadowing and observing.
Regardless of the discontentment from her parents, Florence set out to chase her dreams of becoming a nurse and registered as a nursing student at the Lutheran Hospital of Pastor Fliedner in Kaiserswerth, Germany. Nightingale was recognized as the first nursing theorist and modern nursing was started in the middle of the 18th century. She educated herself and trained for nursing at the age of
The pharmacist dispensed medications and chatted with patients, answering all their questions and advising other customers visiting the pharmacy. I relished in the extensive knowledge she had of the pharmaceuticals, while also being able to interact with her community and use her knowledge to help those who were prescribed the medications she was administering. Being a people person, I was concerned that a career in the sciences meant I would end up in a laboratory every day, only communicating with others who worked in the laboratory. Through shadowing her, I saw that I would be able to do something I enjoyed immensely, while also having the opportunity to connect with individuals not in my field of work. The shadowing experience helped me understand that pharmacy was the indeed the degree path I wanted to be on.
In honor of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing, a tradition/pledge that states the ethics and principles of the nursing profession is said at pinning ceremonies by nurses. Florence Nightingale has had a the most powerful influence on modern nursing through her implementation of sanitary health practices in hospitals starting in the 1850s. She also helped change the perspective of nursing as a lower/menial job. During her lifetime, she implemented practices that were not used before that would help patients from contracting diseases from wounds. She considered these never-before-implemented hygienic practices as practices that should have already been considered as common sense.
My aunt was previously diagnosed with Breast Cancer, they were able to detect it on its dormant stage, which means the cancer is slowed down or asleep. So they were able to remove the cancer and that layer of mass was taken to a laboratory which later was detected cancer free. So my aunt wasn 't recommended to take chemotherapy treatments, due to the laboratory outcome, but as far as being a Pediatric Oncologist, I would want to make the biggest impact in my patient 's life. I 've heard many stories of kids being diagnosed with Leukemia stage 2 and 3 and were able to push against all odds due to the help of their doctor. I would want to be that kind of doctor that would want to try their hardest to make miracles happen and save their lives during the hardest and difficult time of
“I cry at nothing and cry most of the time. Of course, I don't when John is here” (4) Even though she sees something unreal and didn’t mention her husband.

One evidence, according to Hosseini (2007), “ “Go to Rabia Balkhi,” the guard said. A young woman pushed forward, said she had already been there. They had no clean water, she said, no oxygen, no medications, no electricity. “There is nothing there.” “That’s where you go,” the guard said”(p. 306). The women are treated as if their welfare is unimportant because women are thought of as a mere decoration to the society and are considered useless enough to not pay any attention to.
The school works with St. Thomas ' Hospital in London and taught midwifery and domiciliary care ("The Impact of Florence Nightingale on Nursing | RNCentral.com", 2010) Primitively, nursing was seen a low-status job, it focused on the care of ill patients, learning as they did the job since there was no qualifications required to enter the industry (Clores, 2016). Consequently, no qualifications also lead to a hierarchical system, nurses who spent more time in the industry climbing higher in the ranks. Maben and Griffths best summaries the nurses of today’s society in Nurses in society: starting the debate (2008) as “leaders of policy making and healthcare system, partners in a multidisciplinary industry and practitioners of healthcare” (Maben & Griffiths, 2008). Nursing today is respected a profession. Continually the most trusted profession with high ethics and honestly has been awarded to nursing ("Roy Morgan
Just like Hamlet, Offred was also unable to trust anyone other than her best friend, Moira because of the situation she was placed in. Since Offred was a handmaid nearly all of her human rights were taken away, because of this she was unable to build relationships of trust with other people. She had lost all connections with people she loved, with the exception of Moira. Gilead, a world where all the citizens are obligated to obey those in power, none of the people had any meaningful relationships such as friendship or companionship. As shown by Offred 's statement: "We aren 't supposed to form friendships, loyalties, among one another" (Atwood 353), people were expected to not create new relationships.
