Nursing History Research Resources

This is a listing of resources available for study of the history of nursing. It is not a comprehensive list; historical research involves considerable searching for source material. But this list includes regional centers which serve as nursing repositories, a selection of web sites with both nursing and general history content, as well as other nursing history organizations. Additions and corrections to this list are encouraged; please contact aahn@aahn.org.
