Nightingale created social reform in healthcare and nursing. The Nightingale Fund was established after reporting her findings during the Crimean War to Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. She used the money to establish the Nightingale School of Nursing at St. Thomas Hospital in London. She wrote the book “Notes on Nursing, What It Is and What It Is Not,” which provided direction on how to manage the ill.
Crumpler became a nurse, a profession that did not require formal education in that time, and cared for patients in Massachusetts for eight years. She was eventually admitted to the New England Female Medical college in 1860, and graduated in 1864. She was the first and only African American to graduate the school due to it closing in 1873. Crumpler practiced medicine in Boston until the end of the Civil War, after which she chose to move to Richmond, Virginia. Virginia was where she believed she would be able to help more people and learn more about the diseases that afflicted women and children.
As noted by the variables just mentioned, the nurses specifically wanted a leadership and organizational structure that supported Participatory involvement, as well as flexibility for work scheduling and personal/professional development. In addition, nurses wanted to work in an institution that had a clearly defined professional practice model that used the skills and knowledge of the professional nurse. Today, many health institutions have been accredited in accordance with the criteria of the Magnet Registration program by the American Nurses Credentialing Centre (ANCC) within the ANA (ANCC, 2011) In (Yıldırım, Kısa & Hisar, 2012).
In 1860, significant gains in nursing was made; the Nightingale Training school was opened, which was attached to St. Thomas hospital. Her training school attracted so much attention and interest that a year later the “School of Midwifery Nursing at King’s College Hospital was opened” (“Florence Nightingale” The School Run). Starting in 1868, for the next twenty-two years, Nightingale was on a mission to ensure that nursing would become a popular profession, and that it would gain the people’s respect as acceptable for women. She did so by opening the following Nursing locations: The East London Nursing Society, the Workhouse Nursing Association and National Society for Providing Trained Nurses for the Poor and the Queen 's Jubilee Nursing Institute (“Florence Nightingale” The School Run). In 1883, Florence Nightingale was awarded the Royal Red Cross by Queen Victoria as a symbol of gratitude for the impact Nightingale had made on healthcare.

Anybody needs a nurse hence the development of the need theory. Unitary human beings theory by Rogers believes that a person should be harmonized with the environment so that the person may attain maximum health potential. Self-care theory by Orem explains that a healthy person should have wholeness of the human structures, mental and body functioning. Her nursing theory suggested that as much as people seek for nursing attention from the experts, they first start their nursing with themselves and nurse their family members. Neumann’s system model theory looks at the environmental stressors, and the nurses try to retain and maintain the patients’ health through maintaining the patients’ system fit with the environmental system.

(Hoyt, S., 2010) Known as the Mother of Modern Nursing, Florence Nightingale devoted her life to helping others. She cared for the sick and wounded as a nurse in early Great Britain and progressed into administrative level positions where her visionary
Watson’s nursing theories express that the mind, body and spirit of the patient should be taken into consideration. I agree with Watsons that while providing care the nurse should consider care base on the patient as a whole and not just focus on the disorder. I was taught to use Maslow’s hierarchy of need while planning and providing care for my patients. Maslow’s hierarchy is use to prioritize a patient need from life treating issues to love and belong. This hierarchy helps me to provide care which include the patient mind, body and spirit as Watson had
