Membership Information

We are seeking members to share with us the responsibility of preserving the history of the nursing profession. This significant work is largely sustained through membership contributions.

The History of Nursing Archives contains an extensive book collection, as well as the personal and professional papers of nursing leaders; records of educational institutions, public health groups, and nursing organizations; and histories of various American and foreign schools of nursing. It was established in 1966, with help from a United States Public Health Service grant and the financial support of the Boston University School of Nursing. The books and manuscripts in the History of Nursing Archives document the evolution and contribution of the nursing profession in the fields of public health and military history.

Past support from the Nursing Archives Associates has enabled the History of Nursing Archives to catalog, preserve, and make materials accessible to researchers and scholars, as well as to produce exhibitions and publications. Each year, at our Annual Meeting, we present a speaker and host a reception for all members of the Nursing Archives Associates.
