Abstract

American nursing was no carbon copy of the Nightingale system. Not only did American training schools quickly diverge from patterns established by their British counterparts, but American nurse leaders also developed interesting and distinctive forms of professional organization. Indeed, it is for theĀ insights one can gain into the features of organized nursing as it developed in the United States that a cross-cultural, comparative perspective is most helpful. [Author]
