Overview


Nurse: past, present and future looks back at how the nursing profession has evolved over the 100 years since the death of Florence Nightingale. What are the key developments that have brought us to where we are today, and how have these changed the experience of nurses on the ground?

We hear from Helen Sweet on the evolution of professional nursing, Mireille Kingma on recent trends in nurse migration, Andrea Baumann on the global impact
of changes in nursing education, Christine Hancock on the common challenges nurses face around the globe, Yumi Tamura on Interprofessional Collaboration and Maureen Shawn Kennedy on nurses as agents of change in society.
These distinguished nursing leaders guide us through the issues nursing as a profession is confronting today.

Interwoven with their essays are the stories of individual nurses, working in many different countries and contexts. Some are now retired, others are at the vanguard of nursing, redefining the profession for the twenty-first century. We meet Queen’s Nurse Geoff Hunt, among the first male District Nurses in England; Kelly Knoll, a newly-graduated nurse practitioner in Canada who survived the 1990s, when jobs were hard to come by and university requirements for licensing were making senior nurses nervous; Mavis Stewart, who travelled from Jamaica to train and work as a nurse and decipher the British class system; Lois Scott, an international pioneer in tele-nursing; Ghislaine Télémaque, who divides her time between nursing in the communitites in Québec’s far north, and relief missions in troubled countries; Veronica D’souza, Matron of the main operating theatre at the Bombay Hospital; Carol Etherington, who has worked in natural and man-made disasters in the US and abroad, amongst many others.

The experiences they describe enable us to understand how progress in nursing plays out on the ground and what it is that keeps nurses committed to their profession.
