The History of Nursing
Nursing began as a practice reserved for men. The first nursing school was established in India in about 250 B.C., and only men were permitted to attend because men were viewed to be more pure than women. It wasnt until the 1800's that nursing became an organized practice. In the early 1900's, nursing education was received primarily from hospitals rather than colleges or universities. New nursing students were responsible for tasks similar to that of maids- dusting, scrubbing and doing dishes. These students typically worked 10-12 hour shifts seven days a week, for a period of two to three years. After graduating, most worked in patient homes as private- duty nurses and were paid amounts comparable to today's minimum wage. Their duties included bathing, administration of medications and enemas, and tending to wounds and sores. Hospitals evolved from facilities for the extremely poor and death- bound to institutions for general health treatment and childbirth. IN the years that followed, the government invested tremendous sums of money into the health care profession.
