Abstract

Nurses and Surgical Dressers: Medical Students’ Impact on Hospital Nursing Work in Philadelphia and London, 1870 to 1910 Sheri Tesseyman Brigham Young University Jane Brooks University of Manchester Christine Hallett University of Huddersfield Introduction Nineteenth-century nurse leader Eva Luckes argued that nursing and medicine were related but were actually separate endeavors with distinct realms of work. Over time, however, boundaries between nursing and medicine have been difficult to define. Examining factors that affected the dynamics of shifting boundaries between nursing and medicine in the past can increase understanding of the nature of nursing and nursing practice today. As hospitals are a major site of nursing and medical practice, they are a useful setting in which to examine boundaries between the two profes- sions. With the development of voluntar hospitals built specifically to car y e for the sick, and the development of hospital-based medical and nursing schools in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, nurses and physicians increasingly worked side by side to provide care.
