Title : A Look at Nursing Architecture and its Impact on the Learning Environment


In the year 2022, nurses are faced with significant challenges due to COVID 19 pandemic which has dramatically affected not only how we practice/provide care but has also placed emphasis on why, when and where we deliver care. We will be exploring the design of the nursing unit in terms of history to see how Nightingale’s influence on environment still stands firm in the light of today’s practice. We will then look to how the design of nursing units changed during the onset of COVID 19 pandemic as practice environments were transformed into parking lots and areas outside the hospital environment. Lastly, we will look at what the future may hold in terms of nursing unit designs as we try to maintain a balance in what is known as the clinical environment. So, let’s explore what we have learned from the past, while we live in the present and then how we can focus our strengths and resources to improve delivery of care and health outcomes for our patients in the future
