This program looks at the origins of nursing in Asia, Europe, Africa, Australia, and the Americas from prehistoric times through the Middle Ages, Renaissance, and modernity up to present time. It discusses how the role of nursing expanded from being a midwife or physician’s assistant into a full-fledged credentialed profession as superstition was replaced with scientific medicine and considers the role of nurses in major wars. The program details the contributions of such major nursing figures as Rufaidah bint Sa’ad, Florence Nightingale, Sister Dora, Mary Eliza Mahoney, Virginia Henderson, Dorthea Dix, Clara Barton, Mother Teresa, and Margaret Sanger. It also takes a look at how the recent Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated changes in global nursing practice.
