Part One: The History (What do we know?) This brief historical introduction to Florence Nightingale explores the social, political and religious factors that formed the original context of her life and writings, and considers how those factors affected the way she was initially received. What was her impact on the world at the time and what were the key ideas and values connected with her? Part Two: The Legacy (Why does it matter?) This second part explores the intellectual and cultural 'afterlife' of Florence Nightingale, and considers the ways in which her impact has lasted and been developed in different contexts by later generations. Why is she still considered important today? In what ways is her legacy contested or resisted? And what aspects of her legacy are likely to continue to influence the world in the future? The book has a brief chronology at the front plus a list of further reading at the back.

Most people know Florence Nightingale was a compassionate and legendary nurse, but they don't know her full story. She is best known for her work during the Crimean War, when she vastly improved gruesome and deadly conditions and made nightly rounds to visit patients, becoming known around the world as the Lady with the Lamp. Her tireless and inspiring work continued after the war, and her modern methods in nursing became the defining standards still used today. Includes notes, bibliography, and index.

For over forty years there's been a trickle of Ghanaian nurses to the English-speaking developed world. One widely quoted source says almost two thousand nurses left the country between 1995 and 2002. The exodus is set to continue as nurses opt to leave a crumbling health system to earn more abroad. In the UK, some nurses can earn more in a day than they could in a month back home. Spending on health in Ghana has gone up but its value has declined. In 1990 it was $4.5 dollars per person per year. In 2004 the figure was $13.4 dollars. However, inflation means that Ghana is spending less in real terms per person. Most of that money goes to wages. For almost everything else, patients have to pay because the health service operates on a 'user pays' principle, the so-called 'cash and carry' system. The stresses of this system is one reason health workers leave.

Nurses work in complex situations with daily challenges, where the needs of each patient represent unique demands. Action research helps nurses to investigate their practices as reflective practitioners, allowing them to ask `What is going on? How do we understand the existing situation? How do we improve it?' This book supports nurses in investigating their own professional practices in order to develop the new insights and approaches: * embodying holistic perspectives in dialogical and relational forms of individual and organisational learning, * equal emphasis on processes and outcomes; * welcoming all participants' contributions , and listening to all voices; * developing a patient-centred focus where people are involved in their own healing; * building communities of enquiring practices. This book is intended for undergraduate student nurses, qualified practising nurses in clinical settings who may or may not be engaged in formal professional education courses and nurse educators and managers.

Few career opportunities were available to minority women in Appalachia in the first half of the 20th century. Nursing offered them a respected, relatively well paid profession and - as few physicians or hospitals would treat people of color - their work was important in challenging healthcare inequities in the region. Working in both modern surgical suites and tumble-down cabins, these women created unprecedented networks of care, managed nursing schools and built professional nursing organizations while navigating discrimination in the workplace. Focusing on the careers and contributions of dozens of African American and Eastern Band Cherokee registered nurses, this first comprehensive study of minority nurses in Appalachia documents the quality of healthcare for minorities in the region during the Jim Crow era. Racial segregation in health care and education, and state and federal policies affecting health care for Native Americans are examined in depth.

The average life expectancy of a male born on the Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota today is 40 years old-the lowest life expectancy of all peoples not only in the U.S. but also in the entire Western Hemisphere. Written by and for nurses, this is the first text to focus exclusively on American Indian health and nursing. It addresses the profound disparities in policy, health care law, and health outcomes that affect American Indians, and describes how these disparities, bound into the cultural, environmental, historical, and geopolitical fabric of American Indian society, are responsible for the marked lack of wellbeing of American Indians.American Indian nurse authors, natives of nine unique American Indian cultures, address the four domains of health-physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional--within each region to underscore the many stunning disparities of opportunity for health and wellbeing within the American Indian culture as opposed to those of ""Anglo"" culture. In an era of cultural competency, these expert nurse authors bring awareness about what is perhaps the least understood minority population in the U.S. The text covers the history of American Indians with a focus on the drastic changes that occurred following European contact. Included are relevant journal articles, historical reports, interviews with tribal health officials, and case studies. The book addresses issues surrounding American Indian nursing and nursing education, and health care within nine unique American Indian cultural populations. Also discussed are the health care needs of American Indians living in urban areas. Additionally, the book examines the future of American Indian Nursing in regard to the Affordable Care Act.Key Features: Focuses exclusively on American Indian health and nursing-the first book to do soWritten by predominately American Indian nursesCovers four domains of health: physical, mental, spiritual and emotionalHighlights nine specific cultural areas of Indian country, each with its own unique history and contextIncludes chapter objectives, end-of-chapter review questions, and case studies.

Building and Sustaining a Hospital-Based Nursing Research Program is designed to serve as a handbook for nurses, in hospitals of all sizes, to help them build and sustain a program of nursing research, which is a fundamental requirement in obtaining Magnet status and improving patient care.The book has three main areas of emphasis:1. A framework / foundation for developing a nursing research program that creates new knowledge and enhances the scientific foundation of nursing evidence.2. The structures, systems, and processes for building and maintaining and growing a nursing research program, including resources needed.3. Evaluation processes for nursing research programs and experiential stories from clinical nurses.An underlying premise of this book is that nursing research is increasingly promoted by hospital nursing leaders, but nurses need more support and guidance to develop the program. Nursing research leadership can be fostered. Visual leadership prompts staff nurse interest in research that, when done well, provides new knowledge in patient, nurse and administrative outcomes. The Nursing Research Program at the Cleveland Clinic Health System is described as an example. These foundational steps were developed in 2004 and adapted over time as expectations became system wide, to include small and midsize community hospitals without extensive resources, and multiple ambulatory care and regional medical practices, in addition to the quaternary care medical center with 1300 beds. As a result, the content will include how to adapt structures and processes to fit the needs of various hospital / nursing staff size and based on program goals.
