Introduction: Seeking Your Experiences
People make history; the history of nursing is the result of the efforts and actions of nurses, past and present. Many histories record the life of an ‘important’ figure or event; I believe that to understand history it’s important to look at the experiences of all nurses.
Many nurses left letters, memoirs and in some cases journal articles or books telling of their experiences. With the advent of technology, many recorded – audio and video – their experiences. These form the foundation of nursing history.
One goal of this website is to preserve the real life experiences of nurses by telling the stories of the experiences. These can be recorded - audio or video - or written.
Do you have a nursing experience you’d like to share? I would like to hear about your experience. Please contact me .
