Florence Nightingale’s Environmental Theory Written by Nightingale in the late 1800’s Stated that the environmental factors surrounding the patient impacted their care far beyond what medicine could. Nightingale believed that the right environment could heal patients faster. This then lead to her investigating how sanitary conditions could help or hurt patient care.
