1. Nursing history
is being made today by exemplary nurses throughout the world. Select one
registered nurse who is creating nursing history to be the subject of this
project. This RN must have at least 15 years of RN licensure. The nurse could
be a family member, friend, colleague, acquaintance, manager, former
instructor, or other nurse who is creating, delivering, or influencing the
practice of nursing in your area. Do not select a former or current patient.
Remember that a nurse does not have to create a nursing theory, write
textbooks, or be the head of a nursing organization to make nursing history.
The chief nurse executive who manages to deliver quality care in a small rural
hospital with a tiny budget has a story worth telling. The nurse who served in
the military has a story that is important to document as nursing history. The
staff nurse who consistently provides high-quality care is making history.
History is not merely the major accomplishments or events, but includes the
activities nurses everywhere do in their nursing lives. Milestone 1 is due at
the end of Week 1.

to the selected nurse that statements made in the interview will be recorded
(audio, video, and/or written) and submitted to instructor. The interview is

her
