Why study the history of nursings

  1. Despite all this good historical background of nursing and good theories studied. Reporters,writers and society refute its study as irrelevant and unimportant.
    They keep asking questions such as: "How does the history of nursing aid in saving of life? They have proven with a scale in percentage that :with all these good theories only 30% of nursing accept and use such theories
    They really want to know
    We have to show and teach them .
    But it still remains a questions mark as to the importance of studying the history of nursing

    Could you tell us who is refuting the study of nursing history? Any quotes?

    And I'm a little confused because you jumped from the history of nursing to theories of nursing and how many nurses use them.

    A little more explanation?

    History of Nsg is something that has begun to interest me again. I mean I'm talking about the history of pioneers like Florence Nightingale and others.

    Nsg theorists is something different, altho as a collective entity they have made an impact on nsg practice.

    I really don't have any quote but I have seen in social media criticizing us. Not just them, but society sometimes as a result of their experience as patients in various hospitals and how they were treated badly.
    It is obvious that they might be correct some how and can be proven wrong.
    Am a 19 year old boy who loves and embrace the profession of nursing. Am in the university of Development Studies, level 100. Am just freshly introduce into my dream profession and from the little experience I have been a patient and going to hospital. I have seen that these social writers in my country (Ghana) might be right about fewer nurses embracing the importance of learning the history of nursing. And about the theories which I added. History comes with theories which shapes us(nurses). That was why I added it. Its so alarming . so I ask for your opinions and advice in my run to prove them wrong about us(nurses)m They need answers to their questions.

    I'm not understanding how a patient having a bad experience with a health care encounter and posting about that experience on social media has anything to do with the study of nursing history or nursing theory.

    I appreciate that English is most likely not your first language, but I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about. What exactly is it you are asking here?? Are you asking why it is important to study the history of nursing?
