Overview

Commemorating the first century of publishing the American Journal of Nursing, this outstanding pictorial volume chronicles the dynamic relationship between the nursing profession and the culture at large. Over 400 photographs and anecdotes from the pages of AJN, the American Red Cross and other repositories of nursing history were selected to document nursing's struggle from handmaiden to specialist, from training programs to graduate education, and from apprenticeship to evidence-based practice and teaching. Eighteen contemporary nursing leaders add their insightful perspectives on issues that have affected the nursing profession throughout this century. 100 Years of American Nursing: Celebrating a Century of Caring is a testament to the dramatic progress that American nurses have achieved and the perfect gift to give yourself, a friend, or a colleague.
