Nightingale’s 19th century observations that natural light and a view of nature improve hospitalized patients’ recovery has been validated in randomized-controlled trials. Currently, there are interdisciplinary teams that include nurses and architects, that design optimal healing environments with a focus on patient-centered care.

Delivering the kind of care that Florence Nightingale practiced hinges on nurses fully utilizing their education and training and on their  taking the lead to improve health care safety and quality and patient outcomes (National Academy of Medicine [NAM], 2020).
