Studying and understanding our history is
important since the past cause the present and even the future, which is also true
about the history of nursing. Even though the living conditions in the past were
completely different they can be tied in to current problems that we are
having. There was a nurse who was able to demonstrate the benefits nurses in the
society and shaped the world of public health nursing

               The solution to the problem in
the past can be restored to today. In the middle age, individuals did not know or
understand the importance of sanitation, therefore people suffered severely
from communicable diseases. According to Harkness & DeMarco (2011), During the
14th century, the Black plague killed approximately one fourth of
the population in Europe (p.120).  Because
of that tragedy people started to pay more attention to sanitation.  Another example is 1918 influenza pandemic and
the H1N1, in 2010. These two-pandemic happened about 92 years. However, nurses
were able to apply the lessons and treatments learned from the 1918 influenza
pandemic “key principles of respiratory hygiene, hand washing, disinfection of
household utensils and the critical importance of wearing gauze masks in public”.
(Vanderlinden, n.d, para. 11)

greatly to the nursing education. She was the founder of public health nursing
in 1912 and Henry street settlement 1893. She dedicated her life to the
immigrate on lower east side of New York. There she made home
visits and helped the sick and “taught health and hygiene to immigrate women.”
(Harkness & DeMarco, 2011, p.16). She was also a professor and taught the nursing
skills. As the migration rate increased, the need for nurses became more. Therefore,
the public health nursing institution started getting more nurses and the “recognition
of public health nursing as a necessary of government.” (Harkness & DeMarco,
2011, p.17). Now the current practice can learn the necessary skills of nursing
in school while also apply some of the previous skilled used in the past.Studying and understanding our history is
