MILITANT ANGEL by Harriett Berger Koch


Email this review


A tribute to Annie Goodrich, leader in nursing education, pioneer in public health, ""America's elder statesman of nursing"". With little time out for personal or human interest, this follows the progression of a steadily ascendant career, from her appointment as a young nurse as director of nurses at St. Luke's, on to succeeding posts at the New York Hospital, Bellevue, and as State Inspector of Training Schools, lecturer at Columbia, Dean of the Army School of Nursing, and Dean of the newly formed Yale School of Nursing. Determined, independent, imperious, but still much loved by her students, she campaigned for and achieved- during her lifetime- better standards for her calling. Possibly of professional or vocational interest, this is not for the general market.
