Nightingale's Principles For The
Education Of Nurses (table 4-2)
 Nursing is an art and science.
 Student must be taught to treat the patient as a
  total human being, not a disease and there must
  be compassion and empathy for each person
 Emphasis must be on education not service
  (school should be independent from hospital)
 Graduate nurses should always continue their
  education
 Nurses should be taught how to take care of the
  sick and must not do laundry, clean run errands….
 Education for nurses should be a combination of
  theory and practice.

                                 10

 Responsibility.

     • National professional organization
  – NLN
     • Accrediting body for nursing education that focuses
       on research and professional development

                                     11
Educational Pathways for Nursing
   Diploma — hospital based education and training
    of 2-3 years which awards a diploma certificate

   Associate Degree (ADN) — community/junior
    college education of 2-3 years which awards an
    associate degree

   Baccalaureate Degree (BSN) — university
    education of 4 years awarding a bachelor's
    degree

   Master's Degree (MS/MSN) — a 3-year program
    of study for an individual who already has a
    bachelor's degree in a field other than nursing.

                                 12
Professional Role and Responsibility.

  Educational Mobility
   – NYS task force
      • http://www.lpntorn.info
   – RN to BSN
      • A2480/S294 would require registered professional
        nurses (RNs) to attain bachelor’s degrees in
        nursing (BSN) within ten years of their initial
        licensure, while “grandfathering” nurses already in
        practice and nursing students already enrolled.
        Memorandum of Support
         – Assembly Higher Education Committee
         – Senate Higher Education Committee
