Abstract

This first volume of N1ct5ky Hhwy Review marks a sipiicant next step toward assuring vigorous and usefd scholarship in nursing history. In 1980 a small band of committed people gatherd together to form what was at 6rst called the International History of Nursing Society. Ten years ago the society's members renamed thdves the American fiation fbr the History of Nursing; now they are ready to sponsor this annual journal. This first volume thus celebrates more than a decade of achievement in the field; at the same time it inaugurates a new era of historical research and writing. Scholars from inside and ourside nursing mce various mads to historical understanding oftfie complex and viMy impormnt phenomenon we call nursing. N-qqH&qR&w is rhe cririd vehicle bringing &eir work m hcalth professionals, historians, other scholars, and to the public we serve. The &mim publishes historical studies, commentary, historiographic essays, and bdc reviews. This first volume rdects our intent: to help all those interested in health care history to keep in touch with new and ongoing work gain ready access to related btoriography, and anatye the historical perspective on contemporary health care concerns.
