This open forum is an activity that stimulates the debate on scientific nursing knowledge showing the awareness of the organisers with regard to the nursing discipline.
We first present a proposal to change the term “Music Therapy” for “Music in the care of health”, more concordant with the nursing science and the holistic influence of music on people.
We will then develop a descriptive and longitudinal study consisting of a brief historic biographical sketch on how music has been used to influence people consciously.
We highlight the importance of Florence Nightingale as the first nurse who left written proof of the importance of audio stimulation in patient care.
Lastly, we perform an approximation of the Nursing Intervention described at the NIC (Nursing Interventions Classification) as “Music Therapy”, including the NANDA nursing diagnoses, where the importance of the “Music Therapy” intervention is shown for the resolution of problems dealing with nursing competence.
