"Conscious of the past, equal to the present, and reaching forward into the future—that’s the Hopkins way. That’s our shared legacy. That’s the challenge of your tomorrow." With these words to the class of 1988, Barbara Donaho (1956) underscored the complex history of nursing education at Johns Hopkins. From the founding of the hospital's training nursing school in 1889, through years of struggle to achieve full academic recognition as the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing, Hopkins nurses have maintained high standards of excellence, professionalism, and vigilance—both at the bedside and in the highest realms of leadership. In this beautifully illustrated volume, Mame Warren, Linda Sabin, and Mary Frances Keen weave a rich tapestry of the Nursing School’s deep and fascinating tradition. The voices of generations of Hopkins nurses combine with a well-researched historical narrative to offer a stirring tribute to Hopkins nursing students and alumni along with unique insight into the history of an admirable and challenging profession.
