AACN BSN Essential VIII clearly calls for BSN graduates to appreciate nursing history and its impact on today’s professional nursing practice. As you consider your future professional nursing practice, tell us
how you will share stories and lessons from nursing history with your nursing colleagues; and
how lessons from nursing history will impact your own future nursing practice.
