    A History of American Nursing, Second EditionThroughout history, nurses have affected lives, healed millions, and advanced the profession. To help inform and empower today’s nursing students, we’ve published a new edition of A History of American Nursing, Second Edition by Deborah Judd and Kathleen Sitzman.

    Providing a historical overview essential to developing a complete understanding of the nursing profession, the text examines each era of US history in sociopolitical context, including images of nurses, nursing education, advances in practice, war and its effects on nursing, licensure and regulation, and nursing research. From Florence Nightingale’s influence through world wars and today, A History of American Nursing, Second Edition encourages students to examine the past while making connections to the present.
