Abstract:
History as a context for nursing research and practice: Implications for transnational understanding
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2004
Conference Date:July 22-24, 2004
Author:Gibson, Mary E., MSN, RN
P.I. Institution Name:The University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing
Title:Predoctoral Fellow
Objective: This presentation will identify aspects of nursing history and historiography that are important to international nursing scholarship, quality of care and health care policy, explore the concepts of history, examine the recurrent and robust themes in the global development of nursing’s professional identity (both nationally and globally), and present an overview of recent international nursing research scholarship. This paper presents historical scholarship as an important foundation to inform debate in areas of controversy or contention among international nursing leaders, scholars and practitioners’ as they seek solutions for current problems, inform current practice, and set future priorities. Implications: Nursing’s professional identity is grounded in multiple systems of education, practice, and service that have developed with in each country in unique and culturally specific ways. Although many defining attitudes, ideas, events and institutions of the past have shaped both the global development of nursing and the dissemination of knowledge and practice, only recently have nurse researchers recognized the importance of transnational and intranational historical scholarship to provide context for international discussion of nursing foundations, practice, and research. Along with exploring the importance of history as context for international nursing scholarship and research, this portion of the seminar will explore the concepts of history and nursing’s professional identity (both nationally and globally) and present an overview of recent international nursing research scholarship.
