Healthcare professionals are essential to ensure the well-being of patients. Their work is too difficult because there are too many activities and there is always a shortage of time. Although the doctor is the central element, it is also necessary to create an adequate workforce to offer a full-fledged service. Other players in the health sector include nurses, although only a few have managed to stand out and be considered among the best in Mexico.
The staff in this area does not complement the doctors as they both have different training. Although in the end both need each other to provide full support.
In the case of nurses, their empathy and humanitarianism are essential because they are in constant contact with patients. They must always project security to reassure people in times of crisis.
The creator of the modern model of nursing
In fact, the Italian Florence Nightingale is considered the creator of the modern nursing model. Born on May 12, 1820, she had to overcome several barriers from the world and times in which she lived from an early age.
At that time, it was believed that women had a duty to devote themselves to the home and it was not possible for them to pursue a university education. Although in this case her aspirations were greater and thanks to this she managed to be the first woman to be accepted Royal British Statistical Society. He also became an honorary member of the society American Statistical Association.
After qualifying, she laid the foundations for the professionalization of nursing by establishing her own nursing school in 1860 St. Thomas's Hospital, London. It thus became the first secular nursing school in the world.
Returning to the present, the association Sigma Theta Tau International just published a list of 100 Bravest Nurses in Latin America and the Caribbean promoting excellence in nursing.
The main purpose of this honorary society is to strengthen leadership in nursing. It is also responsible for supporting education, training and research initiatives aimed at strengthening the specialty worldwide.
The recognition was announced in the group's official publication for Latin America and the Caribbean in honor of its first 100 years.
