In 1878, at the age of 29, Elizabeth Robinson Scovil decided she did not want to spend the rest of her life serving tea in Fredericton, New Brunswick. She applied and was accepted for a new two-year nurses’ training program at Massachusetts General Hospital. Scovil began writing and publishing on nursing and nursing education while still a student. On graduation she launched into practice and within a few years was Superintendent of nurses’ training at Newport Rhode Island Hospital.
A Nurse for All Seasons is the vocational and intellectual biography of this remarkable woman, a woman who strode out of the Victorian Era on a mission that helped open the way for the feminist movement and the rise of gender equality as a fundamental human right.Author: Virginia Bliss Bjerkelund
