Dr. Dossey Barbara

History is one of the most important aspects of any profession. Modern nursing finds a proud heritage in its founder, Florence Nightingale (1820-1910)—a mystic, visionary, reformer, healer, environmentalist, feminist, practitioner, scientist, and politician. Her contribution to nursing theory, research, statistics, public health, and health care reform are foundational and inspirational. Her spiritual example prompts us in our own healing journey.

This webinar will explore Nightingale’s legacy, and the integrative, holistic, and integral paradigm that Nightingale introduced in the 1860s and its application in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. It will also examine the integration of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

As we move through the COVID-19 pandemic, nurses are expanding their consciousness to raise their powerful voices as planetary citizens. They are becoming more aware of strategies for personal and planetary health (local to global) that leads to healthy people living on a healthy planet worldwide. Planetary citizenship requires nurses to strive for universal inclusion, diversity, equity, and justice. This is essential if we are to embrace all of life for the sustainability of self, others, and our environment.



  1. Explore Florence Nightingale’s legacy of caring, health and healing—local to global.
  2. Examine the Theory of Integral Nursing (TIN) and its implications for practice, education, research, & healthcare policy.
  3. Discuss nurses’ role with the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
  4. Consider what each of us can do and be as we move forward as a humanity.
