Nightingale's Environmental Theory

The Environmental Theory

Theoretical Sources

Education: Nightingale is a very good mathematician (a nurse statistician) and a philosopher.
Her aunt Mai describes her as "a woman with great mind."

Literature: Her political inclinations were from the ideologies of Stanley Herbert (family friend).
Dicken's novel "The Adventures of Martin Chuzzlewit", a novel with a that portrays a victorian drunken, untrained and inexpert nurse causes an stigma and bad impressions about nurses. The novel greatly affects her beliefs about being a nurse and pursue the battle to change the negative stigma about nurses.

Intellectuals: Political leaders like John Stuart Mill, Benjamin Jowett, Edwin Chadwick and Harriet Marinue greatly affects and influence her beliefs of changing things as she viewed as unacceptable to society.

Religious Beliefs: For Nightingale, an action for the benefit fo others is called "God's Calling". As stated in her diary, "God spoke to me in silence and he called me to services" - DUM VIVIMUS, SERVIMUS.

Use of Empirical Evidence
She uses the polar diagram (statistical diagram) in her reports, books and letters.
She is a very good researcher and a great statistician.

According to Palmer, Nightingale has a very excellent research skills, she is good in recording, communicating, ordering, coding, conceptualizing, inferring, analyzing and synthesizing. Her focus is on the observation of social phenomena. She highlighted the use of observation and the performance of tasks in the nursing education.

Major Concepts and Definitions
Environment - concepts of ventilation, warmth, light, diet, cleanliness and noise. She focus o the physical aspect of environment.

She believed that "Healthy surroundings were necessary for proper nursing care."

5 essential components of healthy environment:
1. pure air
2. pure water
3. efficient drainage
4. cleanliness
5. light

Concerns of Environmental Theory
1. Proper ventilation focus on the architectural aspect of the hospital.
2. Light has quite as real and tangible effects to the body. Her nursing intervention includes direct exposure to sunlight.
3. Cleanliness and sanitation. She assumes that dirty environment was the source of infection and rejected the "germ theory". Her nursing interventions focus on proper handling and disposal of bodily secretions and sewage, frequent bathing for patients and nurses, clean clothing and handwashing.
4. Warmth, quiet and diet environment. She introduce the manipulation of the environment for patient's adaptation such as fire, opening the windows and repositioning the room seasonally, etc.
5. Unnecessary noise is not healthy for recuperating patients.
6. Dietary intake.
7. Petty management proposed the avoidance of psychological harm, no upsetting news. Strictly war issues and concerns should not be discussed inside the hospital. She includes the use of small pets of psychological therapy.

Nursing Metaparadigm

Nursing
Nursing is very essential for everybody's well-being. Notes on nursing focus on the implementation and rendering efficient and effective nursing care.

Person
The patient is the focus of the environmental theory. The nurse should perform the task for the patient and control environment for easy recovery. She practice nurse-patient passive relationship.

Health
Health is the being well and using every power that the person has to the fullest extent. A healthy body can recuperate and undergo reparative process. Environmental control uplifts maintenance of health.

Environment
People would benefit form the environment.

Theoretical Assertions
Prevention of interruption is very vital in the reparative process of the patient. Her focus is on nursing education that required even more training.

Nursing Practice is the application of common sense, observation, perseverance and ingenuity.

"If the person wants to recuperate, he needs to cooperate with the nurse."

Disease came from the organic materials from the patient and environment not on the germ theory. She totally disagree and rejected the germ theory.

Sanitation means the manipulation of the environment to prevent diseases.

Nursing is the commitment to the nursing works.

She gives a little focus on the interpersonal relationship and nurse caring behavior.

She believed that the nurse should be moral agents. "Think and act like a nurse."

Professional relationships, principles of confidentiality and care for the poor to improve health and social condition were the focus of her nursing care.

Logical Form
She used inductive reasoning from her experiences and observation with is address with logical thinking and philosophy.

Importance of Environmental Theory

Practice
1. Disease control
2. Sanitation and water treatment
3. Utilized by modern architecture in the prevention of "sick building syndrome" applying the principles of ventilation and good lighting.
4. Waste disposal
5. Control of room temperature.
6. Noise management.

Education
1. Principles of nursing training. Better practice result from better education.
2. Skills measurement through licensing by the use of testing methods, the case studies.

Research
1. Use of graphical representations like the polar diagrams.
2. Notes on nursing.

Evaluation of the Environmental Theory
Hardy evaluated the environmental theory as a grand theory because it explains the totality of the behavior. It is classified as lower-level theory but it provided the greates foundation of nursing education, practice and theories.

The Analysis

Simplicity: The theory is simply explained as the nurse, patient and environment interacts with each other. There are dangers in the environment and benefits from the good environment. The roles of environmental management to patient recovery is greatly emphasized. Manipulating the environment to prevent diseases. Nurse-patient relationship focus on cooperation and collaboration. Her care focus on eating patterns and food preferences of the patients, provision of comfort, protection from emotional distress and conservation of energy.

Generality: The universality of the concepts provide general guidelines and is still applicable and relevant today.

Empirical Precision: The theory is stated completely and presented facts. She uses quantitative research method. She focus on observation and experiences rather than systematic empirical research.

Derivable Consequences: Measures of independence and accuracy of care. Nurse-patient relationship towards wellness, environmental manipulation and psychological care.

Bisagas, Jameel Mykaela O. said...

Ma'am I am confused because if we would look in the second Nursing Meta paradigm which is Person it is stated that she or Florence Nightingale practice the nurse-patient passive relationship which you also explained to us just this afternoon that it would mean that only the nurse do the work because passive literally means that it is subjected to an action without responding an action in return or not taking an active part but in the Theoretical Assertion, it is also stated that "If the person wants to recuperate, he needs to cooperate with the nurse."

Waiting for your response for me to find clarity. Thanks.

Nightingale's Environmental theory contributes a lot in our present living. Because of this theory, we understand the importance of a clean environment especially for the sick persons. Ofcourse they need a healthy environment in order for their illness to get healed easily.

Nightingale showed us how she applied this theory to her practice when she took care of the wounded soldiers during the Crimean War. As a nurse, we must find a way to maintain the cleanliness of the patient's surroundings.

I am so thankful that I was able to know this theory so that anytime, anywhere, I can apply it. Not only in nursing practice but also in my day to day living, because a "Healthy living starts in a Healthy Environment.

this idea is great!we can now follow our lessons more clearly, we already know some info. about florence nightingale but when i visited this site, my mind was cleared with the info. about her.the questions on my mind had been answered clearly.

as we all know, florence nightingale is the mother of modern nursing.in the eye of the british soldiers she helped in the crimean war,she is a heroine. without her, i think many of the soldiers will die in the war even though many nurses are there.without her environmental theory that is helpful to us in everyday, we will be prone to sickness.
i believe that florence nightingale has the right honor in the title "tht mother of modern nursing", rather than Mary grant seacole.Florence nightingale is intelligent, she went to study. she is excellent in writing and statistics so she bacame a statistics and a writer, she also became a feminist and of course, a nurse, contrast to mary grant seacole who is not a licensed nurse and has no educationalblogmail.com background.

The Environmental Theory of Florence Nightingale help us in our daily living, it is applied in our house, school, and to the public places.The theory of Florence Nightingale always remind us that we should have a clean environment to have a healthy lifestyle to stay away from diseases cause of dirty and messy places
Ih her theory there are 2 things that I can't undersrtand,the first is she didn't beleive in the "germ theory" and for her the reason why people get sick is because of dirt in the floor, carpets and many else and she call it the "compound organism" but the said compound organism was not clearly elaborated or explaned.And the second one is being bossy in caring patients because she didn't talk personsl,for her only caring a patient is important until they get recovered or cured,but her environmental theory was great and helpful to us.

Mam Danila thanks for the oppurtunity that you have given to us to understand more,about the theorist and their theory.Mam thanks to this blog because it can help us to have more readings to have a advance knowledge.

Honestly, at first I was not that interested with this blog becuase for me it only add me another work. But as I go on with this extension class, I've realized that it helped me a lot to understand and gained another ideas.


Well anyways, about this article, Environmental Theory is the most applied theory in our daily living. It adds me another knowledge in sanitation and other practices that I could apply in my usual life. Also, it contribute to the concept that "Prevention is better than cure" becuase to have a healthy body, we must live also in a healthy environment to prevent diseases.

This blogspot especially all the articles that were posted here helped me a lot to easily understand the life of nightingale and how she was identified as the Lady with the Lamp. I know without this, it would be tricky and at the same time, it would be impossible for us to catch things up and to get the info that was discussed by our professor. Before I thought that signing in here would be somewhat confusing but then I prove myself wrong. Another thing, before during our discussion I find it hard to take down notes because of the time pressure. This site also helps us to discover different things not only related to Florence Nightingale but also to other theorist. It made me realize how brilliant they were in their profession. After reading the articles here, I have realized that Nightingale was truly devoted to her career that ever since she was a child she already dreams to be a nurse. Before I admit that I really do not know her, or should I say I know her just by her name but know I gain lots of information about her, her performance as a public servant and information about her experiences throughout her career.

To end this, I just want to thank Mrs. Oloresisimo in posting different articles here and for making this blogsite possible. Thank you. (o_o)

Environmental theory as well as florence Nightingale did a huge part in the nursing profession. Its significance in our daily living and the application of the theory can be use anywhere without definite time.At times we didn't know we are applying the theory of florence nightingale.

though, this theory is simple it helps alot of people particularly to patients to recover easily.

truly nightingale deserves the title as the THe mother of modern nursing and we shall be proud cause we are her followers.

prof.oloresisimo, a big thanks for posting this topic. It will help us alot in our studies. and this post helps me to understand our topic easily.:))

Even before we do not know that the common practices we act daily towards the environment is from the idea of Florence Nightingale. Her theory that is passed on through generations is really significant to us though we may not easily notice it aside from our perception that a clean surrounding is nice to be seen Also, because of her, we knew the relationship of environment to one's health that if an environment is unclean, the organic materials will try to give us diseases...

Nightingale's theory is definitely a living theory and will always be... Thanks for her contribution to nursing that we are able to taste the benefits of having a knowledge about it..

Thank you also Ma'am O.

Environmental theory of Florence Nightingale.For me it is the most applicable theory. it explains that clean environment and sanitation is one of the things that helps us to achieve good health. and i agree to that, because it is really true. no one in an unsanitated environment stays healthy. and i can say that Florence nightingale is living in me because i'm applying her theory in my everyday life.

Louie Aldous V. Faller said...

Florence Nightingale's Environmental Theory is very effective to the nursing profession because it is in the environment how the people being healthy and well through different concepts and ways. It is much influences the life of nurses because through her theory, there will be a successful recovery of a patient if his environment is clean and well-organize. This is also applied in our daily living not only in the nursing profession. Everyone can be a Florence Nightingale someday starting to her own theory. This theory makes me realized how the environment affects the health of thousands of people all over the world.

thank you for posting this article. god bless and more power!

This theory shows that Florence Nightingale is very influential in our daily life. Before Florence Nightingale's theory hospitals were dirty and diseases spread easily now hospitals are more sanitized and properly organized. She also introduced to us the importance of cleanliness in the surroundings.

From being a daughter, nurse, servant and a hero to everyone she left us her Life Story to inspire us and to follow what she did in the past.

It shows the importance of having a good environment that we must keep our environment clean, we must know how to maintain it because a nursing student we must know it for it is not our sake but for the sake of others. We must apply it in our daily living.

At first, I guess this topic is hard to understand but as time went by i found out that it is full of excitement and at the same time it is really inspiring.

In their article of Florence Nightingale, I am so proud of her, it’s amazing. Even this article was too long but I’m so happy because it can help me in my day to day life on how to become clean in our environment, in home especially in ourselves not only me but more people that can live because of her theory or Environmental Theory. Her Theory was not only applied in the hospital but also in everywhere. It can help to my study because when I step in college I cannot erase to my mind of being afraid because I afraid that I cannot pass the nursing course but now that I watched the article of Florence Nightingale I have strength and I am sure to continue this course. Because of this Theory, I understand the importance of being cleanliness in our environment especially for those sick person I can apply it anywhere, anytime.
To my Instructor,
I’m very thank you po Ma’am, because of this article my knowledge was become wide and have moreinformation and I know the things that I don’t know. It is very big things that will help to me to understand more information about the environment. God Bless po.

Good Afternoon Mrs. Oleresisimo,

I think this article made me realize that we nurses must have a saying that will always inspire us in all we do in caring that we nurses must always think that in anything that we do and care for other people it is always a way of serving god itself. It also inspire me that this theory is simply explained as the nurse, patient and environment interacts with each other and there are dangers in the environment and benefits from the good environment. This roles of environmental management to patient recovery is greatly emphasized which is very important in nursing. Like what is in the caduceus motto that me nurses are "COMMITED TO SERVE".

And I'm very thankful for you mam for giving this opportunity for us as an inspiring registered nurse for the moral values and added facts about this theory. thank you very much again.

Florence Nightingale's Environmental Theory is a kind of theory that we always encounter and apply in our everyday life. The best example of this is cleaning of our own house and surroundings, drinking fresh and clean water and proper waste disposal.This theory states that the environment was the major component in creating an illness and benefit to the patient. This theory can be easily understood because of its simplicity. It only contains three major relationship; environment to patient, nurse to environment and nurse to patient.

No doubt that the Environmental Theory is the foundation of all the theories that has been formulated. Imagine our world today if Florence Nightingale didn't conceptualized Environmental Theory. We cannot realized that a dirty environment and poor sanitation may lead us into sickness and diseases and having a clean environment lead an everlasting benefit to us.

Florence Nightingale's Environmental Theory primarily focuses on the importance of cleanliness and achieving proper sanitation.As a health care provider, we should maintain and practice good hygiene, provide proper ventilation and inculcate the importance of sunlight to our body and noise reduction. It should be practiced everywhere and anywhere. We are the one who is responsible for our own health.Her theory is a big help in our daily lifestle.

The theory of Florence Nightingale, Environmental Theory is very applicable. She believed that good sanitation prevent people to have disease or illness. I agree with this.

Florence Nightingale is the best!.

tracy lirio said...

Good evening ma'am oloresisimo.
This article made me really really understand the Environmental theory, that environmental theory was indeed a very important theory, this talks about the nurse, patient and environment relationships that a patient is mostly affected by the environment that is polluted which a nurse must observe ang react with that any kind of situations,so a nurse must have a common sense and fast reaction or solutions about the diffrent happening that may happen to their patients. So this theory is very important to practice, understand and studied.

Also environmental theory is not just about the nurse-patient relationship but a nurse, patient and environment relationship, this article explains the difference between Peplau's Theory to Florence Nightingale Theory, which made my mind understands every theory made by the first two theorist.

The theory of Nightingale is very dominant in our time. It can help a lot of people to prevent sickness. we should be aware of our environment, because everyday our environment is changing. this changes can be positive or negative. so we should be informed about the changes. and as a student of nursing education we should be a great help with our environment and lead our society to a healthy living.

ma'am thank for this article..it helped me to understand the theory of Nightingale.Gobless always!!!

Justin said...

Nightingales theory is so simple yet amazing, because who would knew that the environment is concern to health, and now everybody is using this concept, you can never live in an unhealthy environment and that is true. Today health is a big problem in this world, regarding to hygiene, waste disposal, and water sanitation, and I know that this theory is the key to lessen the problem concerning health. Ever wonder what would happened if this theory is not conceptualized by Florence Nightingale? I guess it would be hard for us to learn where the illnesses of the people came from. How simple is it to understand that everything truly comes from the environment. I guess common sense is in fact important to this profession, and I think I know where Florence Nightingale really gets her concept. I assume that she is beyond doubt an intelligent woman. I actually admired her common sense.

About this article,I've read,I really learned about Florence Nightingale's life,Her background education,religious beliefs.Nightingale believed in the so-called,"God's Calling",which lead her to become a nurse.As a nurse Nightingale believed that "healthy surroundings were necessary for proper nursing care".I've also known that in her Environmental Theory,there are some concerns with her theory,also the importance of this theory.As I read her Theoretical Assertions,I've realized that though she was the one who formulated the Environmental theory, she disagree & rejected the germ theory.But that was not a great deal for me,atleast Nightingale proved something with her famous theory,and we benefitted from it.I myself benefitted from her,and learned a lot.

A theory that is composed of simple concepts but covers the totality of behavior removed the vague idea on my mind.

At first, I did not realized that all the nursing theory we have discussed and to be discussed is already part of our daily living.

Her theory, although consists of common sense, grealty influenced nurses in thier practice. Because of this theory clean environment is applied to help the sick patients recover as soon as possible. Her simple thoughts provide us the knowldge that we should acquire so that we succeed in our future profession.

To sum it all, reading this article, helped me to understand Nightingale's theory. I'm sure I will apply it wherever I go.

Florence Nightingale's Environmental Theory contributes a lot in our everyday living.Her aspects of ventilation,warmth,
light,cleanliness,
quiet and diet are really applicable in our daily life.Because of that,we are able to control and prevent diseases.Her theory also gives importance in nursing education and practice.I really admired her courage because of what she fought for during that time.She is a good-hearted person because her ultimate goal
is to serve the poor eventhough she is an Aristocrat Victorian.She devoted her life in providing care
for the poor.WE should respect her beliefs in her rejection of the Germ theory.Maybe,she have her own reason why she stated that.

According to the Article "Nightingale’s Environment Theory"
Nightingale is really an important person. Her achievements in life really shows how the environment can really affect the health of person. According to the
Theoretical Sources likely in Education: Nightingale is a very good mathematician and a philosopher. Literature: Her political inclinations were from the ideologies of Stanley Herbert, Dickens’s novel "The Adventures of Martin Chuzzlewit”. The”. The novel greatly affects her beliefs about being a nurse and pursues the battle to change the negative beliefs about nurses. Intellectuals: Political leaders like John Stuart Mill, Benjamin Jowett, Edwin Chadwick and Harriet Marinue greatly affects and influence her beliefs of changing things as she viewed as unacceptable to society. Religious Beliefs: For Nightingale she only believes that God is always with her and in her works. Use of Empirical Evidence, she uses the polar diagram in her reports, books & etc. According to Palmer, Nightingale has a very excellent research skills, she is good in recording, communicating, ordering, coding, conceptualizing, inferring, analyzing and synthesizing. Her focus is on the observation of social phenomena. According to her observation and the performance of tasks in the nursing education is wise to use. Her concerns for the environment are proper ventilation for the hospital, light, cleanliness and sanitation. She assumes that dirty environment was the source of infection and rejected the "germ theory", warmth, quiet and diet environment, unnecessary noise is not good, dietary intake & petty management. According to her nursing Metaparadigm, nursing is very essential for everybody's well-being. The patient is the focus of the environmental theory. Health is being well and using every power that the person has to the fullest extent. People would benefit from the environment. The importances of her theory the Environmental theory in practice are disease control, sanitation and water treatment and etc. In education is for the principles of nursing. Lastly in research is her research called “Notes on nursing”. According to the analysis she got simplicity because it’s very simple. Generality, it’s about the general ideas of nursing. Empirical Precision, the theory is stated completely and presented facts. Lastly derivable consequence, measures the independence and accuracy of care.
Well that’s all what I can say about the article and what I understand about it,

Florence Nightingale's Environmental theory is very helpful in our daily living.It helps me to realize more the importance of cleanliness, having a good ventilation and many more. Environmental theory is very effective because as a patient,I can't get well if my surrounding is dirty and noisy. Of course the patient should have good ventilation so she can feel better and feel comfortable.

"Prevention is better than cure" for me this is what Florence mean to her theory. If you know the proper sanitation you will not be infected by some diseases.

Even though that her theory are very simple but it has a great impact to the health of the patient.

Health is the most important aspect of our life so let us start a good sanitation with proper application of her theory.

_Nightingale’s theory became useful to provide a general way for all nurses.
_It’s the fact that sanitation is a crucial way which we must maintain to avoid diseases.
_It is also right that the sick, poor people would benefit from environmental improvements that addressed their physical and mental aspects.
_And we as a nurse have an important role in gearing forward the condition of poor by improving their living condition.
_Her backgrounds, life, and experiences reflects her ideas in promoting this theory.,,

The environmental theory of Nightingale were applicable to our daily living. Her theory encompass the provision of healthy environment to provide safety to the people. Without her theory maybe many people die early because of lack of knowledge regarding the proper caring of one self and on how to cope to their environment. Her theory must maintain by the full cooperation of individual.

Thank you for this information!

From the article that I've read I learned a lot of things especially about the Environmental Theory in which it is made or done by Florence Nightingale. It is full of information that will help us to gain knowledge and also to be a critical thinker.From the practice of nursing to education and from environment to study the field of nursing.The achievements and knowledge that she gain and have known were very incredible and so amazing. The environmental theory that she made or done have different pattern she have the generality in which she used it in her theory for her to help us and understand the things around us.
She does this theory for us to be effective not just in the field of nursing but also to be a effective nurse someday. So i can say that this article help us not just to gain something but also for us to improve ourselves.
Once again thank you for letting us to read the articles that you've done to improve our studies.

-= There are certain factors which led to the formulation of the environmental theory such as education, literature, religious beliefs, and intellectuals. In education: Her being a good mathematician or statistician and she being a philosopher. Since the beginning, she had a dedication in her studies and being a woman is not a hindrance for her to continue studying. In literature: Dicken's novel "The Adventures of Martin Chuzzlewit", a novel which portrays a Victorian drunken, untrained and inexpert nurse causes a stigma and bad impressions about nurses. Dicken is her favorite author that’s why his novel greatly affects her beliefs about being a nurse. In religious beliefs: She had what she described as her calling as she heard the voice of God speak to her to do his work. In intellectuals: Political leaders influenced her beliefs of changing things as she viewed as unacceptable to society.
-= Nightingale's Environmental Theory states that certain aspects of the environment should be used in assisting in the recovery of patients. . If the environment of the patient is well, it will give the patient a more chance to recover more faster, for example, in the patient's room, if the air going through the window are clean and the room is well ventilated the patient will have a more comfortable feeling that is essential for his recovery. The environment has big factor when it comes to patient's recovery, just imagine how a patient can be treated if his room is dirty, no fresh air and no clean water. What will happen to him? Florence nightingale is not only a skilled nurse but a keen observer. She able to came up with the idea that if there is sanitation there is health.

Good morning ma'am!!!
As I read the information about the theory of Ms. Florence Nightingale,I saw that everything that she knew and learned in her studies,where applied in the formulation of of her theory-The Environmental Theory.

Without her theory,maybe the situation in our hospitals will be very contrast on the reality..:D..what I man is that the hospitals without the application of the theory will look so pussy and unorganized. Hospitals will become a place to mortality rather than a place for better health and heigene.

I learned so much about the theory,..on how it can be applied in our daily living.Actually, I am trying soooo hard to apply the theories concerns in my daily activities.I promise to clean my room regularly and avoid it for getting messy.I am also trying to minimize the volume of my voice in respect to other people.

Well i think this is only the beginning of a very big change in my life,..because i'm am not that used in cleaning things.haha...

Thanks ma'am!!

For Florence Nightingale. She considered nursing as a means of doing the will of God. And maybe her religious beliefs pushed her to pursue her calling and it also became the foundation of her nursing theory and that is the Environmental Theory. During the Crimean War, she thought that any person who could provide care to a patient or ill person could be considered as a nurse. Nightingale believed that environment is the main reason why people get sick and if there is a good environment, people could prevent their selves from getting sick and could improve the recovery of the patient. Her theory focuses on the environmental components that affect the health of an individual and that are the water, efficient drainage, ventilation, sanitation and light.

It is evident that Florence Nightingale’s theory remains applicable today, not only in hospitals but also in our homes and communities. As an individual, and also a nursing student, I also use Florence Nightingale’s Environmental Theory. I keep our house clean so that it will not be the cause of infection in any member of my family.

Even though Florence Nightingale’s theory lack on specificity because she didn’t cleared out what is the organic materials that causes the illness of a person and regardless of the fact that she only relied on her observation and experience, still her theory became beneficial and efficient in the nursing profession.

The essence of our environment affects us more like the ENVIRONMENTAL THEORY of Nightingale. Her theory focuses on how environmental aspects affects people physically, emotionally and socially.


That article and the ideas helps me realizing that the most important aspect that can affect us is the environment. We can apply the concepts , ideas and information to the modern nursing that is very useful to us.

Thanks Mrs. Danela Oloresisimo for that article and hope you will post more that we can use in reviewing the subject...

Based on my conclusion about this theory,ENVIRONMENT takes more contribution which regards on giving care to the sick. If Florence Nightingale didn't made this theory, I really don't know how nursing will be effective in taking care of the sick. Therefore, this theory is very important in the nursing practices as well as in every aspect of giving care..

She explained that good environment would prevent illness and it is essential in maintaining health

Karren Cen O.Gepiga said...

Thanks for this article ma'am. This is a big help for me to understand more about her theory. For me her theory is simple: Dirty leads diseases. So in order to prevent the spreadout of diseases, we need to clean up our environment. The only thing that is not accepted to her theory is that she didn't believe in germs. What she didn't knew is that those diseases she was talking about were all came from those germs. Well,I still admire her...

Nightingale’s Environmental Theory has a momentous part in Nursing Theory. Even if this theory was accumulating in last century, it is very relevant until today. The water treatment and sanitation helps us to prevent lots of disease. Good ventilation, lighting, and temperature helps patient for their speed recuperation and have comfortable feeling.

It is appropriate that Florence Nightingale is the “Mother of Modern Nursing”. She has numerous concepts that contributed to the enhancement of Nursing practice, education, and research. She is the first Nursing Theorist, and I think some theorist acquired only their idea to Florence Nightingale.

If there are healthy environment, there are healthy people.

Thanks to you Nightingale, for your manifestation of Environmental Theory. This Theory has a various contributions and prerequisite towards the safetyness and better life not only for the sicked but for all of the individuals around the world.

Her EnVironmental Theory is not only encompasses by the nurses or any personnel inside the hospitals, but, we, as an ordinary individual can perform and practiced her theory may be in and out of our house. Some of these activities are
cleaning the bedroom, washing the dishes, cleaning the comfort room, tree planting, wastes disposal, performing Clean & Green and so on,,,

There are important lines to ponder
"For every individual to have a satisfying life.... their environment must be well organized, clean&green and well developed.
"Healthiness is base on what kind of environment. Once, a problem occurs, the CURE would only be found directly on the ENVIRONMENT.

Because we all know that Florence Nightingale is intelligent but like me she also have her bases before she completed her theory.As i know has a knowledge for science,math.,literature and arts.She also loves philosophy,history,politics and economics.That's why her aunt Mai describes her''a woman w/ a great mind''.I also inspired her because she has faith in God and has religous beliefs that God spoke her in silence and call her to service.She contributed proper surroundings that help us to live wealth and to prevent disease.

Mam Danela you give me more inspirational topic that make me widened my outlook in life about the goodness of the nurses.

liz margie sandoval said...

environmental theory, as general as it is considered, has been sharing a very vital role not only in nursing practice but also in the continuity of our lives.
as far as my understanding had reached, i could say that this theory is very essential in the most practical sense for i believe that without this, it is of great difficulty for an individual to overcome sickness.
though it has not excelled in clarity, still, its simplicity provides an easy access for us to apply it. as a matter of fact, even before i took up the nursing course, i've been already applying this theory for more than 16 years without the knowledge if the existence of this theory.
but of course, having this journal reading plus the TFN discussions regarding this theory provides a more beautiful and efficient view about it.
to the professor who had this brilliant idea of having this as a complement for us to have a more comprehensive nursing education, i want to convey my words of gratitude to her.

For me, Environmental Theory is not just in nursing practice it can also apply in our daily living. And because of this, I learned the importance of maintaining the cleanliness of our surroundings, for us to avoid the spreading of disease.

Good afternoon Mam Dani!
I can say that Nightingale’s Environmental theory is the foundation of all theories. Nursing profession has been more developed since she conceptualized her theory. Years had passed and still it is very applicable on our day to day changing world. I learned that in order to be healthy, one must act to maintain the cleanliness and balance of the environment. Bad sanitation will lead to bad nutrition and diseases.

Now, I realized how important her theory to research, education, and practice. It’s very unbelievable that she had saved thousands of lives of the wounded British soldiers from infections that can cause severe death.

Imagine a world full of pollution, contaminated water, toxic wastes…
Do you think we can still survive for a long time?
That’s why we should be thankful for her great achievements in life and serving as an inspiration to all future nurses to come.

Environmental theory is a great inheritance that Florence Nightingale left for us. Her theory is momentous and prominent because of its influential role in our daily living for it is applicable in everywhere like in our houses, schools, hospitals and in our community. It emphasizes the value of cleanliness and neatness which brings us comfort and peace. Aside from it, this theory helps to control and prevent diseases which greatly help us to be a healthy person. In my opinion, even though Florence Nightingale didn’t pay much attention on nurse-patient interaction, she helps in improving it by her theory. If her theory was not applied, hospitals today maybe in a great confusion because of improper ventilation which will surely affect the moods of nurses, doctors and patients that can contribute to stress which we all know is very communicable. Because of this, it is hard for the patient and the nurse to interact with each other. But because of Nightingale’s theory, everything are now properly arrange and in order not only in hospitals but also in houses, schools and in our community. And I think if Florence Nightingale didn’t introduce her theory to us, instead of curing ill patients by bringing to the hospital, maybe, the hospital will bring a more complicated disease because of its unsanitary environment.
Environmental theory, a significant contribution of Nightingale, is a priceless thing that everyone must give value, and perhaps, improves it, for better benefits of the new generation.

Im just wondering,if there's no environmental theory,is there will be an hospital today?yes i think there will be but can we call it a home for the people who need's cure?definitely "NO".A home has a life,a home has a good environment,a home has a good influence and A home affects the life who live's their.
I chose home as an example because i consider the hospital as a place that has everything you need in order to recover in a short period of time,and to make it possible we should consider what the theory of Florence Nightingale is,such as
-to have a clean environment for the sick
-to take good care of the sick
-to give patients an enough rest and so much more principles

Truly Environmental theory gives a big contribution in the field of medicine and in appreciation for the woman behind it we should consider this as a need of a patient for them to be satisfied in our service.

is to serve the poor eventhough she is an Aristocrat Victorian.She devoted her life in providing care

Nightingale's Environmental theory is so great. It helps me a lot to understand all about the theory of Nightingale. I found out that she's not only a nurse; she is a mathematician (statistician), philosopher and a good researcher. Because of the inequality of the rich and poor people this is one thing that pushed Nightingale to fight for the rights of her people especially the poor one. The changes in her society affect her beliefs.

She’s great! She deserves to be called ‘a woman with great mind.’ She focused her theory in environment. She also shared her concerns in different things in the environment. She made different terminologies to understand and to explain everything about her theory. And this article gives everything about what students need to know. It helps us a lot.

Thanks mam

...Florence Nightingale's ENVIRONMENTAL THEORY was focused on the manipulation of environment which really helps me to understand and analyze the importance of cleanliness, sanitation, pure water and air, dietary intake and proper management of noise. This study provides me essential informations not only as nursing student but also a well-being.

...It also hepls me to recognize and evaluate its importance and applications to my daily living. In her theory, she emphasizes that "Sanitation is wealth" and that's true. Sanitation really matters, especially in medical field, in order to be free from dirt and other impurities that may cause sickness and diseases.

...As she believed, "Healthy surroundings were necessary for nursing care"...I as a nursing student will continue to patronize her theory and apply it in my profession in the future.

I can say that Florence Nightingale has an exotic mind. She has a great source of her energy and that is God. Oh, I really admire people who always include God in everything she does! She has multi skills such as knowledge in statistics. Being a nurse, she extended the capability of being a nurse and improve that capability which before was being under-estimated. She had formulated the best theory of environment which not only improve the meaning of a nurse but also the quality of medication in hospitals.
What a genius she is theorizing the Environmental theory! Florence Nightingale categorized the nursing profession as an expert one so I believe that all the nurses must act properly as to be expected. If i can be a nurse now, I know each and every time, I will apply her theory for the wellness of the patients.

The Environmental Theory has a vast influence on nursing practice. In this theory, different aspects such as ventilation, warmth, light, cleanliness, noise, proper diet etc. are considered in the field of nursing profession. Nightingale's Environmental Theory is widely used even in our daily living. We can apply this in our community and even in ourselves because it is very effective and efficient. Thus, this theory is beneficial to everyone if we will gonna observe and apply it in our daily lives.

As a nursing student and a future nurse, Nightingale's theory is such a blessing for me and to every nurses. This theory helps us to realize that environment has a great impact on our health. A sanitized environment gives and produces a healthy community. It means that if we will maintain a clean and sanitized environment it will lessen the possibility to have diseases on our society. That's why I believe in saying that "Prevention is better than Cure"...

Therefore, we need to have a clean and sanitized environment for us to be more productive in such a way that there is no disease in our place because we are all healthy...

What's Environmental Theory?
Florence Nightingale is also a great reader.And she is against in the novel of Dickens that there is a Victorian nurse that is drunken and that nurse is not well trained by her profession and results to have a bad impressions to the nursing profession.
Concerns of Environmental Theory
1. Proper ventilation focus in the proper sanitation in the hospitals just for example:
*cleaning the rooms of the hospitals
*hospitals having wide window
2.Light has quite as real and tangible effects to the body.
we all know that sunlight can gave us the much energy that we can need.
3. Cleanliness and sanitation.
This can always affect our daily life.And by this idea it can prevent us from getting sick and having disease.
*malaria
4. Warmth, quiet and diet environment.
She makes her patients comfortable in their environment:
In their seasons she always makes her patients comfortable with it.
Must have proper diet.
And could have a peaceful recovery.
5. Unnecessary noise it couldn't help the patients to have their fast recovery.
6. Dietary intake.Patients must have their proper diet.
7. Petty management.The patient must not be alarmed because it could affect his health.
Nursing Metaparadigm
Nursing-the one who gives care to other person.
Person-It is the patient that receives the care given by the nurse.
Health-the wellness of the person
Environment-its were the patient benefit for him or her to be healthy.
Importance of Environmental Theory
Practice
Environmental Theory practices on the prevention of illness,proper sanitation and proper waste disposal.
Education
it the result of better practice and uses Systematic arrangement of studies.
Research
Uses notes and models.
The Analysis
Simplicity
Her theory is simple because it explains the relationship of the nurse,patient and environment.It uses diagrams to make us simple to understand.
Generality
It is broad and applicable in any case under medication and sanitation.
Empirical Precision
Her theory stated facts and truths and in is under her observation and experience that can be in everybody.
Derivable Consequences
It is the nurse and patient relationship with each other and results a positive effect for the recovery.

Thank you Ma'am.

" Healthy surroundings were necessary for proper nursing care" , Nightingale's believed... We are benefited enough to have her in our lives and endure the essence of her 'Environmental Theory'. It really plays a vital role in our society. The environmental aspect of her theory remains a significant component in improving the quality of care which is the prime purpose of nursing. Through this, we became aware on the importance of sanitation and other aspects of her theory that affects the healing process and helps in fast recovery of a patient..

Indeed, we truly embraces her works and contributions in nursing, and it is a fact that we always encounter those in our everyday life in this living world.

"Nightingale, you will always be a part of us"..

Ma'am Danela, no words can say how much we appreciated your effort in teaching us in TFN subject and for this class extension.. You enlighten everyone's heart and mind to pursue and love our studies. Then, we could finally serve people just like Nightingale's did.

It's really undeniable that environmental theory is the foundation of all theory. Florence Nightingale's theory is very applicable in our daily lives. . without her theory, maybe our world will be dirty and it will have poor sanitation. If this happen, curing illnesses and diseases will be hard for us.

So,with that I really want to thank her for her excellence in the field of nursing! I couldn't imagine nursing without her!

So always keep in our mind that sanitation is the best prevention of all illnesses! As always say... "Prevention is better than cure!"

Florence Nightingale has a great influenced in terms of health and care aspects to everyone because of her “Environmental Theory”. She thought and leaves a lesson to everyone that “Clean environment leads us to a healthy human being”. I agreed to what my teacher said that everyday in our life, we cannot survive without Nightingale theory. She possessed to have an extraordinary mind to be able to conclude that man during the Crimean War didn’t died because of war wounds but of the different diseases that came from environment. Up to now, her theory is being used and applied. We can say that her theory teach us a lot to longer the lifespan of the people and to be able to achieve the fullest extent of a healthy person.

Many people(historians) studied and argued about Florence Nightingale's legacy to be the Mother of Modern Nursing. But it was proven that she deserve her title and she greatly influenced the nursing care today. As we all know she cared the British men/soldiers in the Crimean War and she discovered that many of them died not because of bullets but because of illnesses caused by dirty environment.
And I can see, now a days it's very obvious that there are many dirty places where mosquitos,cockroaches and other insects that carry various virus and/or diseases stay. It's very important that we should and it is good to live in clean, peaceful place than dirty place, isn't it? because PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE. By maintaining our place clean and well organized, we prevent those insects to live/stay in our place that can cause us diseases. Even in the hospitals, it is very important to maintain it clean and properly arranged because nurses and doctors can take care their patients better. And it is good that we have Florence Nightingale who changed and influenced the proper and effective ways of caring the patients.

jesssica w. veras said...

Florence Nightingale's Environmental Theory is applicable at all times. The reasons why are the following:
>First, Nightingale converge mainly on environment/surroundings and she enumerate the attributes of a healthy environment.
>Second, and it is true that "Healthy environment were necessary for proper nursing care", Nightingale stated. Because doctors, nurses, and other health workers can perform their job well if they move or work in a clean, well organized environment/place.
>Third, Nightingale defines sanitation as manipulation of the environment to prevent diseases. In dictionary it is as a process of establishing hygienic condition. That is if cleanliness and proper arrangement is maintain,therefore diseases are prevented.
>And lastly, both patient and nurse should help each other, the patient needs to cooperate with the nurse if he wants to recover and the nurse must do his/her duty well and with dedication for them to achieve their one goal.
But for me, the only thing that is wrong with Nightingale is that she didn't believe in germ theory. She stated that diseases came from organic materials not from the germs that is incorrect because germs/viruses are the real cause of diseases and not all organic materials are germs.

Florence Nightingale was the first nursing theorist, and Nightingale was the first to look at health care from a systematic, and organized process.

She defined nursing " THE ACT OF UTILIZING THE ENVIRONMENT OF THE PATIENT TO ASSIST HIM IN HIS RECOVERY."

Her theory on patient environment, and the effects of it on the health was a groundbreaking in its recognition to the importance of environment- internal, and external.

Florence Nightingale's theory is very applicable in our daily lives for the environment plays a very important role in our health. "A CLEAN ENVIRONMENT GIVES A HEALTHY PEOPLE."

In my opinion, she's just a human who believe that she was called by God in HIs service. Obviously, she responded to it by choosing to be a nurse. She has many great talents and rich also, but she had chosen to serve the needy. She formulated a theory that became a big step in converting nursing into a professional discipline. HEr theory is broad and can be used everywhere (school, home, community, etc) With the combination of a great mind and practical strategies, one of the foundations of nursing theories was formed. Because of her, people recognized nurses as a real health worker and not an errand boy/girl.

Florence Nightingale's profound knowledge to various areas of lore had given her the chance of making useful nursing interventions which became behooving in the case of the soldiers in Turkey.
Indeed that acquiring knowledge as a nurse is a requisite task we must meet to appropriately render care to our patients.

Environmental theory was proposed by Florence Nightingale. It is a grand theory because it explains the totality of the behavior. It is also classified as lower-level theory but it provided the greatest foundation of nursing education, practice and theories. Environment includes the physical aspect of environment. She believed that "Healthy surroundings were necessary for proper nursing care" Florence Nightingale introduced the 5 essential components of healthy environment. This includes pure water, pure air, efficient drainage, cleanliness and light.
This theory of Florence Nightingale is very helpful to the situations we have now.

The Environmental Theory made by Nightingale was such a help in improving our well being. It does not only cure but is a way of preventing illnesses to attack our body.

Maybe Nightingale was a genius because would you imagine that she's a very good mathematician, a nurse statistician and a philosopher.

The problem on her theory was she only focus on the environmental factors affecting the patients and lacks communication.

I noticed the "DUM VIVIMUS, SERVIMUS" posted on the gym when the capping and pinning of 3rd year student were held. I got curious of the word and I want to know it's meaning. Through the journal, I have read that it means "God spoke to me in silence and he called me to services".

All I can say, Nightingale was devoted to serve the people in need. Florence Nightingale and her theory was such a legend.

Nightingale wants us to develop a more clean and healthy environment to live at. She really cared for her patients. As future nurses we should have the guts to set an example to others. We should be role models. And through following the basic theory of Nightingale the Environmental Theory we can give additional knowledge to the people around us.

The five essential components of healthy environment by Florence nightingale posed great significance during her time, when health institutions had poor sanitation, and health workers had little education, training and were frequently incompetent and unreliable in attending to the needs of the patients. Also she emphasized in her environmental theory the provision of a quiet or noise-free and warm environment, attending to patient's dietary needs by assessment, documentation of time of food intake, and evaluating its effects on the patient. Nightingale’s environmental theory create a big impact in our society and it has a great help in our every day living.

the nightingale's environmental theory was a very good contribution ever made in nursing history. actually it's not only for nursing rather it is also for our daily life.

As we all know Florence Nightingale’s Theory is one of the famous theory among all the theories in nursing. According to her concepts, in order to prevent diseases the environment must be manipulated by applying proper sanitation and good ventilation that’s why her theory is widespread especially in most of the hospitals. Because the environment of a person is one of the main factor that affect the person’s health. Her Environmental Theory is the frequent thing that we are applying in our everyday life. And it is a good thing that her theory really helps us to prevent illnesses. And from her theory the importance of having clean environment of the patient is really a big deal that’s why most of the hospitals are now having proper sanitation and water treatment.

Florence Nightingale believed that a nurse must be moral agents, “Think and act like a nurse”. I agree with her because the nurse must know her responsibilities to the patient, she must have the knowledge according to the safety of her patient. The nurse must think and act in a way where she can deliver her nursing care to the patient at her best.

During the Crimean war Florence Nightingale found out that the wounded soldiers are being badly cared, hygiene are neglected and infections are everywhere.Florence Nightingale and her colleagues start cleaning the hospital, the equipments and reorganizing the patient.Florence Nightingale thinked that sanitizing the surroundings of the soldiers can help them to get healed easily. Environmental theory starts here.

Environmental Theory's concept of ventilation, warmth, light, diet, cleanliness and noise is a great help in our day to day living, especially, it contributes a lot in nursing profession. A nurse should have knowledge to find a way to protect his/her patient in infections and diseases. A nurse must know what is the best for her patient.

Florence Nightingale's Environmental Theory was a great contribution in the field of Nursing. This article has provided me with lots of information about the significance of this theory in education, research and especially in our practice.


Through the application of this theory, which emphasizes the importance of cleanliness of our surroundings, living in a disease-free environment could be possible. Also, i'm very thankful to Florence Nightingale because without her, nursing will not be considered as a profession and the works of the nurses will not be credited. Because of her environmental theory, as a nursing student, I can help in promoting health and prevention of sicknesses through my knowledge of this theory.


Thank you mam dani for posting this article. God bless and continue doing good deeds for the benefit of your students..=)

Dicken"s novel greatly strikes Nightingale's belief and so she wants to serve people for them to believe in the true essence of nursing care.
she was called by God to become a nurse and that she served for the benefit of others.

as a nurse statistician, she used polar diagrams in her studies.

according to her theory, healthy surroundings are necessary for proper nursing care. in order for the environment to become healthy, it should have pure air, pure water, efficient drainage, cleanliness and light.

she believed that nursing care is essential to all individuals...

The Environmental theory of Nightingale is really important in today’s living. The usefulness of this did not end up when the Crimean war ceased. From then until now, we believe that dirty surroundings will contribute sickness. Though she did not agree with the germ theory, what she thought is still relevant or related to it because if the environment is untidy there are germs which will give diseases to us. Her theory could be seen in all settings, this should be practiced not only in hospitals but everywhere.

Environmental theory of Florence Nightingale is what we usually observe and being applied on everything that surrounds us and most especially in the hospital which focused on enhancing surroundings of the patients. Her concept on her theory provided enough information about the importance of clean environment on the health of a person and gave a great assistance, in order for us to avoid occurrence of disease.

This theory helps me a lot. Before, I didn’t usually clean my room because I didn’t know everything when it has something to do in cleaning, when I encountered the environmental theory of Florence Nightingale, I realized that I should clean everything, even the smallest thing in my room which can be a cause of disease.

Nightingale’s theory was a good theory because it was able to cope up with the qualifications needed. Also, manipulating the environment by keeping the environment clean really modified my perspective about nursing in a modern sense. Control of diseases and sanitation plus water treatment and many more were properly applied to the nursing profession and gave patients proper care and treatment. A good statician that she is helped her in her profession as a nurse in a way that she was able to prove the efficiency of her theory and assumptions with the differences in terms of quantity with the survivors and what remedy should be given with different kinds of patients.

*** Taking up nursing poses a great challenge on me. After reading the life of Florence Nightingale this brings me to realization that its not only wearing a total white uniform but most of all the service i have to render to my expected patients/clients.
Being called the Lady with the Lamp dedicated to serve wounded soldiers, heal them and consoling them. The picture of a nurse does not end there but the use of her capacity to analyze what causes high mortality from those of disease than from war injuries.
This means nursing is not just providing service to heal wounds but analytical thinking why such disease occur.
I agree to the statement of Nightingale's regarding that health " is being well and using every power that the person has to the fullest extent".
Everything that surrounds a person has a contribution to make him healthy. Actually i am recommending her to be considered as the mother of Public Health since her concept of environment as what as described by Fitzpatrick and Whall as " those elements external to and which affect health of the sick and healthy person " and includes "everything from the patient's food and flowers to the patient's verbal and non-verbal interaction with the patient"...

THANK YOU!

her theory was applied in so many things in the surrounding. Like the good ventilation, example of this is when our teacher told us to open the windows in our classroom.There's a lot of things where you can applied her theory.

Her theory was focused on ENVIRONMENT.Without her,maybe our surrounding is so unhealthy.

First of all, i will make compliment to the new learning techniques her in Southern Luzon State Universtiy. Thank God that we have Ma'am Danela Oloresisimo who made the learning in nursing be easy in a way that all the topics is posted her in the blogsite after the discussion. This is a sort of review for us in having this. Although we have books, we now easily get the complete and brief detail about the theories.

Thums up!!! for Florence Nightingale..
This sort of discussion about Florence Nightingale is very consistent all throughout the study. It is simple but in her time no one can ever think of that problem. This is applicable in today's health care system in a way that this will be the basis on how we can meet the totality wellness of an individual. Some of the hospital her in the Philippines depend on the environment factor which patient be posible get the disease either communicable, virus that causes health manifestation. This theory is very easy to understand due to the terminologies used and the concept od the Environmental Theory. She include those environmental factors, which is the sanitaion, water drainage, ventillation, and other as variables in her theory.

As far as i concern, this theory without even though, we are already applying this in our daily living knowing that it is from Florence Nigthtingale, the Matriarch of Modern Nursing.

Again and again, this one is very useful and 100% i admire her. I think I have already my inspiration in learning this course, it is the theorist. That i might apply their theory in my profession just like Ma'am Dani.

That's all i can say..
Thank you very much, i really express myself by this.

Godbless readers..

Nightingale's theory contributed a lot to the nursing profession. This is the reason for the beginning to care for the condition of an individual, well or illed.

Is he feeling well and healthy? Is he able to adapt to his environment? This is the big question. Nightingale sees the environment as a factor that greatly influence and affects the condition of an individual. For a person to achieve the state of wellness, he must have a good environment and he must be able to adapt to it.:)

For me, she really deserves to be the "Mother of Modern Nursing" for her great contribution. Her theory marked the beginning of other nursing theories. She is great. A person I now admire.:)

And thanks Ma'am Oloresisimo for giving me the opportunity to know more about her. Waiting for more chikas!:)

In their article of Florence Nightingale, I am so proud of her, it’s amazing. Even this article was too long but I’m so happy because it can help me in my day to day life on how to become clean in our environment, in home especially in ourselves not only me but more people that can live because of her theory or Environmental Theory. Her Theory was not only applied in the hospital but also in everywhere. It can help to my study because when I step in college I cannot erase to my mind of being afraid because I afraid that I cannot pass the nursing course but now that I watched the article of Florence Nightingale I have strength and I am sure to continue this course. Because of this Theory, I understand the importance of being cleanliness in our environment especially for those sick person I can apply it anywhere, anytime.

Florence Nightingale's
theory taught me to have a
good empathy in life. It
gives me the impact to admire
her and understand what she
has done. Because she has not
just an intelligent mind but
also has a good heart.

Her concern for others
leads her to decide to take
the way in serving the people which in return she is being recognized and still her
memories as a "Good Samaritan" remains.

Leben Beatriz said...

Florence Nightingale's Environmental Theory focuses on the good and clean sorrounding. It did contribute a lot and made a very great impact in the nursing world. In fact from her time until now her theory will be used and even in the years to come because being clean is one of the rules in the hospitals wherein the patiens/clients are being hosted.

Her theory was also beneficial for every person that knows her because every time that a person would think about her the first thing that comes to ourr mind is cleanliness. And "Cleanliness is next to Godliness" maybe this phrase also was inspired by her theory because as she said she was called by our God to serve the people who are in need of help.

antonette escullar said...

The theory of Florence Nightingale is really a great
help for me. Because she inspires me to become industrious in order to achieve the cleanliness in our surroundings. That cleaning is an important task for us who lived
in the house.
The way I cleaned our house,
I always remember her specially when the outcome is to give us
a well-ventilated place.
This theory of Florence nightingale can also apply in
our everyday life. Because once our environment is nasty we will probably get sick.
So cleanliness must be practiced for us to gain a
healthy living.

ahhmm..i wonder that the Nightingale's theory or the Environmental Theory are the things that I do or I see in my daily life.Like the proper ventilation, proper sanitation, etc. I imagine that if there is no Florence Nightingale, we have a very embarrassing environment so the Environmental Theory of Florence Nightingale is very important in our daily life.

Nightingale`s Environmental Theory gave many contributions to our modern nursing care nowadays. Her theory make way for big changes in nursing up to now. Her theory is not only applicable for nursing but also through our daily living.
She gave emphasis on the environment which is the main responsible for many diseases. Her theory also made changes on the structure of hospitals.
Florence Nightingale did not fully embraced the idea of germ theory. She practiced a nurse-patient passive relationship that confused me because it is against the theory of Peplau.

I wanna thank you Ma`am for helping us to learn and understand more about our topics. This blog helps us a lot.
