There have been extended discussions regarding the utility of Florence Nightingale’s legacy to contemporary nursing. Although there is not universal agreement as to Nightingale’s professional contributions, she has received recognition internationally for her philosophical and theoretical foundations in nursing education, practice and research. However, there is a paucity in the literature of the exploration of her writings from a health gain and outcome perspective even though this is the thrust of her most noted works Notes on Nursing (1859) and Sick Nursing and Health Nursing (1893). This paper will explore the fundamental framework drawn from the Nightingale primary documents which integrates the triad of practice, education and organization. This model can be utilized to organize care in such a manner that patient outcomes are the driving force in nursing care planning. In a clinical practice setting, this model emphasizes that patient care outcomes are the fundamental driving force of nursing organization and education consistent with the foundational philosophy of the profession. The Michigan State University College of Nursing offers a summer semester in London aimed at educating students in the comparison between the British and American systems of nursing education and practice with emphasis on historical origins. In the last several years, the faculty have successfully utilized this organizational analysis model as a framework for helping students to understand nursing from comparative and international perspective. Utilization of this model in the International Summer School has helped to emphasize the global perspective of nursing despite differences in health care systems, educational curricula and practice settings. This approach has helped students to identify the political and economic parameters that currently are driving nursing as well as the common core issues of nursing practice.
