AGRAMONTE DEL SOL, Alain et al. Link of the Nightingale nursing model with work education activities. Rev Cubana Enfermer [online]. 2008, vol.24, n.2. ISSN 0864-0319.

A bibliographic review was made with the objective of assessing the linking of the Nightingale nursing model with the work education activities. The professional nursing institutionalization process, as well as the necessary linking established between nursing theory and its connection with practice by the Nursing Care Process, the working method of the professional nurse, were considered in our analysis. It is established a relation between the model that gave origin to the theories and the nursing activities developed starting from a totally scientific statement that includes the following components: Nursing, person (patient), health and environment.It was concluded that Nursing has been considered an art and a science. The proposal of Florence Nightingale made special emphasis on the importance of the interrelation between the individual and the environment, and established general guidelines related to the environment and its influence on health, making affirmations such as: "only nature cures" and "Nursing has to place the patient under the best possible conditions, so that nature acts on him". This way, the first nursing model was set up, closely related to the work education activities implicit in the actions we carry out, to meet the human needs, taking always into account the four basic principles that guide our acting and responsibilities as members of the health team.
