From Wikipedia: Virginia Avenel Henderson, FRCN (November 30, 1897-March 19, 1996) was an inflluential nurse, researcher, theorist and author.[1] Henderson is famous for a definition of nursing: "The unique function of the nurse is to assist the individual, sick or well, in the performance of those activities contributing to health or its recovery (or to peaceful death) that he would perform unaided if he had the necessary strength, will or knowledge". She is known as "the first lady of nursing" and has been called, "arguably the most famous nurse of the 20th century"[1] and "the quintessential nurse of the twentieth century".[4] In a 1996 article in the Journal of Advanced Nursing Edward Halloran wrote, "Virginia Henderson's written works will be viewed as the 20th century equivalent of those of the founder of modern nursing, Florence Nightingale." Book further titled, "A Definition and Its Implications for Practice, Research, and Education.
