On All Frontiers: Four Centuries of Canadian Nursing (Paperback)Christina Bates (editor), Dianne Dodd (editor), Nicole Rousseau (editor)
Paperback 250 Pages
Nursing has a long and varied history in Canada. Since the founding of the first hospital by the Augustine nuns in 1637, nurses have contributed greatly to Canadians' quality of life. "On All Frontiers" is a comprehensive history of Canadian nursing. Editors Christina Bates, Dianne Dodd, and Nicole Rousseau have brought together a vast body of research into one volume. Authored by leading experts, the chapters and vignettes form an overview of the history of Canadian nursing to date. From the midwives of early Canada to urban public health nurses, from remote outposts to the battlefields of Europe, "On All Frontiers" documents the hardships, challenges, and achievements of Canadian nurses. Richly illustrated with archival photographs, it will prove essential to scholars of Canadian health care history.
