Harris College of Nursing and Health Sciences
Harris College of Nursing and Health Sciences: Embracing the Past, Welcoming the Future details the history of Harris College from 1946 to 2019. The initial history, presented in 1973 by the founding dean Lucy Harris in The Harris College of Nursing: Five Decades of Struggle for a Cause, described the evolution of nursing education from a traditional apprenticeship into an academic program that prepares professional nurses. The current book describes how subsequent generations of faculty, students, and alumnae have responded to the challenges posed by Dean Harris in 1973 to provide a clear definition of nursing roles and functions and to research the effects that variables in nursing care have on the health of people.
Anyone interested in professional healthcare will find this book a rich and valuable resource.
