“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.”
—Barbara Donaho ’56, to the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing Class of 1988
Our Shared Legacy, Nursing Education at Johns Hopkins, 1889-2006, the soon-to-be-published tribute to Hopkins students and alumni, explores the complex history of nursing education at Johns Hopkins-from the founding of the Johns Hopkins Hospital in 1889 to the establishment of the School of Nursing as a degree-granting division of the Johns Hopkins University.
From candlelight ceremonies to the operating room, from the shores of the South Pacific to the presidency of the American Heart Association, and from starched aprons to polo shirts, Legacyweaves the history of Johns Hopkins Nursing through a rich tapestry of dramatic illustrations and the voices of generations of Hopkins nurses. Working with well-researched manuscripts by nurse historians Linda Sabin ’67 and Mary Frances Keen ’70, editor Mame Warren celebrates the proud traditions that are the inheritance of every Hopkins nurse.
