idea. Since a large portion of the nursing population was neither raised nor educated with technological knowledge, this raises a very interesting question. In acute care nursing, how does a negative perception of technology advancements compared to a positive view of technology effect patient care? Researchers wonder if these advancements have really improved their work performance as intended or if it has hindered it by lack of acceptance among the nursing staff. The research in this paper came
through a professional search engine, CINAHL. Then I will provide an insight into its implications on the practice of nursing profession. The mixed media portrayal of nurses is precisely depicted in an American reality television series, Scrubbing In. The Scrubbing In chronicles the story of nine young travel nurses, three males and six females, across the country, who have left their home cities and relocate to work at a hospital in Orange County, California. For a few of them such as Nikki and Heather

Theory & The Four Concepts of Nursing Introduction Florence Nightingale, or as soldiers on the battlefield would call her the “Lady with the Lamp”, was an inspirational women of the nineteenth century that had many aspirations and dreams concerning the care of others. Achieving these dreams by “facilitating the reparative processes of the body by manipulating the patient’s environment” (Potter & Perry 2009, p. 45); Nightingale laid the foundations of modern nursing and gave the country and many others
Nursing has greatly changed throughout the years and many aspects. The nursing profession has had to overcome obstacles pertaining to public perception, education, and different issues within the field. These three aspects have been the most influential on the profession because they have all helped evolve and shape the profession and image. A negative image does not persuade others to join the occupation, view it positively, or treat nurses with respect. Conversely, a positive image has proven to
In today’s society nursing has had to face several challenges in its pursuit in becoming a recognised profession. Nursing has gone through many stages of attached stigma, changing as technology and society evolved as a whole. Going from a low social class responsibility in the 19th century, to becoming a well-respected profession that it has become today, public perception, the way in which society views, has changed greatly in the last two hundred years.

plan of care. Many of us know some older people and have grandparents. As nurses we should not be susceptible to miss or stereotype even though they may be slower or have trouble with vision, hearing and dexterity. We must take into account their positive attributes.

As elders get vulnerable and unable to maintain a typical lifestyle, they will either move in with a child or even more commonly, a child will move into their home to help. If there are no offspring, the family member that no longer can care for themselves, will move in with a brother or sister, but they will never go to a nursing home
The image of nursing is dynamic, changing from the late 1800’s to present, the images are made from individual’s perceptions by what is seen in the media, how education is taught in nursing and historical figures (Daly, Speedy, & Jackson, 2014). Historical figures mainly include Florence Nightingale and her, self-sacrifice and the nurses who transformed education (Fee & Garofalo, 2010, p. 1591; Allen, 2010, p. 35). Education has moved forward by the enhancing strategies of teaching student nurses
Organisation [WHO] (2009) indicates the profession of nurse is a key component and major contributor to the global healthcare workforce. However, nursing worldwide has significant disparities, notably apparent between developed and developing countries. Although there are signs of improvement, much needs to be done to globalise the standards of nursing. There is a substantial difference in the profession of nurse in Australia compared to India and the issues encountered (Charles et al., 2014).
