The conceptual ideas of Martha E. Rogers, as taught by her in the early 1980s, are here revisited as a celebration of 100 years since her birth and as a way to look at global or universe health nursing in the digital age. Rogers’ correlates of unitary development are used as a matrix to consider contemporary issues in nursing and health. An example of how her vision has helped create and sustain a healing place for nurses and others called The Sacred Space Foundation in the United Kingdom is also briefly discussed. The authors hold that her unitary and optimistic vision remains relevant as a guide to nursing, and interdisciplinary research and innovation for global health in a rapidly changing world.
