Wanted: Educated Women of Culture - RCN History of Nursing Society Lecture

The Recruitment of British Nurse Superintendents to Philadelphia, 1870 – 1920.


During the late nineteenth century, hospital trustees in Philadelphia actively recruited British nurse superintendents to administer their newly established hospitals and nurse training schools, in an attempt to raise the status of their institutions. The British nurses who responded varied in both the experiences they encountered and the degree to which they achieved success. Through the presentation of biographies of some of the British nurses recruited to Philadelphia, Karen Egenes describes the nurses' motivations, challenges faced, tactics employed, and legacy.

The talk will be followed by a drinks reception from 8-9pm.

Doors open at 6pm, and the event starts at 6.30. The talk will be followed by a drinks reception from 8-9pm.
