Module 2 DQ 1

Knowledge of the foundations and history of nursing promotes an understanding of how nursing has, and will continue to, evolve over time. By researching its foundation and history, one sees how professional nursing has continued to demonstrate it’s ever-broadening scope of practice, thus demanding practicing nurses to achieve higher levels of education and pursue continued education. With higher levels of education and continued education, nurses’ perspectives also broaden, provoking a significant change in their ownership of their profession. It seems to provoke a more vested interest in the growth and development of professional nursing as a whole. At least that’s the change that I witness happening within myself.

There are many trends demonstrated by the interactive ...view middle of the document...

” I learned that you never stop learning how to be a good nurse because nursing is constantly changing with the more knowledge we gain through research.

This constant learning and keeping up to date with current practices leads in to the trend that nursing is evolving into a profession that is requiring higher levels of education. With the growing complexity of our patients’ needs and our broadening scope of practice, nursing is no longer something you are just trained for. It is something you are trained and educated for. This trend has influenced me personally in how it’s affecting the advancement of my nursing career. I have been highly encouraged I obtain my BSN because employers seek to staff a high percentage of higher-level educated nurses.

Lastly is the trend of extinguishing discrimination within nursing practice. In the interactive timeline, which can be viewed at http://lc.gcumedia.com/zwebassets/courseMaterialPages/nrs430V_timeline.php, nurses like Mary Mahoney and Mabel Staupers were African American women who practiced nursing in a society that was not completely accepting of, and did not integrate, the colored nurse. Thankfully, that particular tolerance has been extinguished. I do, however, remember watching TV shows as a kid and seeing a similar discriminative attitude projected onto male nurses. Still today, the nursing population is predominantly female but the percentage of male nurses is growing rapidly and they prove to have many favorable attributes, physical strength being one that I find very helpful in the clinical setting.

As professional nursing continues to evolve, knowledge of it’s foundations and history will continue to be a topic that brings enlightenment to the nurse pursuing higher education.
