Title: Walkerizing the Pennsylvania Hospital: the Legacy of Lucy Walker, a Pioneer in Nursing Education
Abstract: Lucy Walker, the Superintendent of the Training School for Nurses at Pennsylvania Hospital from 1895-1907, was an early leader in standardization of nursing education. As a British nurse trained in the wake of the Nightingale movement, Walker brought the educational and administrative skills of the British nursing system as well as her own intelligence and creativity to the U.S. hospital, and helped to establish U.S. nursing education on a solid foundation.
