  1. 1. Nightingale’s Philosophy in Nursing Practice Theory Overview. Nightingale’s philosophy primarily focuses on the environment, and the patient’s response to their environment. Nightingale’s theory is founded on the belief that a patient’s environment could be altered in order “to allow nature to act on the patient” (Alligood, 2002, p. 84). The nurse and health are also important components in Nightingale’s theory. Environment, person, health, and nursing— the foundation of Nightingale’s theoretical framework. “I use the word nursing for want of a better word. It has been limited to signify little more than the administration of medicines and the application of poultices. It ought to ought to signify the proper use of fresh air, light, warmth, cleanliness, quiet, and the proper selection and administration of diet—all at the least expense of vital power to the patient.” Florence Nightingale (Florence Nightingale, n.d.)
