An American Nurse in Europe: The influence of Annie Goodrich’s visits to Europe on the development of public health nursing education in Europe.
Jaime Lapeyre, RN, PhD Candidate
Several American organizations provided support and aid towards the training of public health nurses in Europe during the post-WWI period, including the American Red Cross (ARC); the Rockefeller Foundation (RF), the Committee for Devastated France; and the newly formed League of Red Cross Societies. In particular, the RF’s interests in this field spread to Europe. American nurse leader Annie Goodrich, who staunchly opposed short courses for the training of public health nurses, was later asked by the RF to complete a survey of nursing education in Europe. This paper examines Goodrich’s connection with the RF in the 1920s, specifically the influence of her visits to Europe in 1925, on the future of Foundation support to public health nursing education on this continent.
