Nightingale’s Theory Application in Current



Nightingale’s Theory Application in Current Nursing

Nightingale’s model of care serves as a foundation of nursing practice in different

settings. It focuses primarily on the environment, in this case. Apart from patient care, it applies

to control and prevent diseases, such as tuberculosis and enhances health advocacy through

observation. Its concepts are brief and easy to understand; thus, it is applicable even today by

most nursing practitioners.

Among the needs of drug-resistant Tb infected patients is observation to ensure clean air,

clean water, proficient drainage, cleanliness, and light, which are all sub-concepts of

Nightingale’s nursing theory. Besides, surveillance is an essential determinant of Tb’s successful

management because it is associated with a high level of case detection ((Kamau, Rotich,

Cheruiyot & Ng’eno, 2015)). Additionally, treatment of Tb is strictly six months, and thus, many

patients require supervision or an observer to ensure the intake of drugs and side effects

management. More importantly, this practice control and prevent contamination to endemic and

epidemic illnesses, which involve avoiding risky behaviors, such as spitting sputum. Therefore,

Nightingale’s concepts of nursing are applicable even today. Moreover, Nightingale’s legacy of

linking caring with activism is still applied today. Proper observation, monitoring, and

documentation of patient’s data ensue clarified health statistics used to educate health care givers

about quality methods of controlling, preventing, and treating diseases, thus, improving

standards and creating awareness.

In my case, one of the primary factors of Nightingale’s theory that I utilize in my current

practice is observing personal hygiene. As a promising nurse, I understand that nursing mostly

involves preserving cleanliness ((Rahim, 2013, p.46).
