  • Heroines of Mercy Street: The Real Nurses of the Civil War

    Posted Feb 19, 2017 by Catherine Rhodes

    The Civil War brought a demand for military medicine on a scale that until then had been unimaginable. Dorothea Dix set out to create a band of nurses to care for wounded and ill soldiers, calling for volunteers "of a certain type." She preferred middle-aged, educated single women of strong health. Nurses, she said, should be plain-looking so as not to be a distraction to...

Nurses, she said, should be plain-looking so as not to be a distraction to their patients.

    The American Journal of Nursing’s 2014 Book of the Year Awards brought high acclaim to the book-publishing program of the Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI). The honor society’s books garnered eight of the 43 honors, including six first-place awards.

    AJN, American Journal of Nursing“It is quite an honor to receive an AJN Book of the Year award,” said STTI Publisher Dustin Sullivan. “To receive eight of these awards, covering such a wide range of topics, is truly amazing. We are extraordinarily fortunate to work with authors who demonstrate such a broad expanse of expertise and quality of knowledge. These awards also reflect positively on the members of our editorial and production teams, who show a similarly high level of skill in working with the initial ideas and bringing them to market in such a successful fashion.”

    With eight awards and seven books represented by these prestigious awards, STTI’s book-publishing program stands strong next to the largest nursing book publishers in the world. To put this accomplishment in context, STTI published 14 books in the eligibility period, and half of those books earned an award. Also, the honor society received the most first-place awards of any publisher.

    For a century and a quarter, the foundation of the University of Cincinnati College of Nursing has been the leadership of strong women affecting change, from the seven women who started the nursing training school in 1889 to the deans and the generations of nurses molding the future of health care.

    Author Wendy Hart Beckman traces the history of the nursing school in a new book, "University of Cincinnati College of Nursing: 125 Years of Transforming Health Care" as a celebration for their quasquicentennial this year.

    The milestone is notable in that it places the UC nursing college in with the pioneers of nursing, yet 125 years still seems not that long for the medical field to have changed so drastically. Oh, how little we knew.

    When Florence Nightingale ushered in modern nursing by treating British soldiers during the Crimean War in 1854, medical practices were archaic by today's standards. She helped to improve the sanitary conditions and set the example for nursing as a respectable profession for women.

    She also started the first professional nurse training school, the Nightingale Training School at St. Thomas' Hospital in London in 1860. The first U.S. school founded on Nightingale's nursing principles was Bellevue Hospital School of Nursing in New York City in 1873.
