Selected Historical Events: Impacts of Society upon the Evolvement and History of Nursing Practice with a focus on Global Conflict/War

The profession of nursing evolves and is molded within the societal contexts for practice. Particular societal events such as a global conflict, epidemic, the Great Depression, regulatory/ governing reform (education regulations, standardized curriculum), feminist movements, scientific developments and regulations (asepsis, vaccinations, mental health reform), to cite a few, have propelled the profession of nursing forward and/or collided with obstacles in the development of the profession.

Nursing practice evolves in the context of societal influences, paradigms or ways of thinking, and societal events. Nursing has evolved in conjunction with these societal events and ways of thinking. Many influences such as global conflicts, Civil War, slavery, segregation, health epidemics, the Great Depression, and scientific developments, to name a few, have directly impacted nursing practice as noted in the textbook readings. As noted historically, global conflict/war can be viewed as a predominate influence on nursing practice.
