Document Summary

Chapter 6: transformations in canadian nursing and nurse education. The first canadian training school for nursing opened in st. catharines, ontario, in 1874. The emergence of the hospital system within the context of burgeoning industrial capitalism set the tone for a nursing force characterized by a unique blend of christian dedication, victorian femininity, medical faith, and labour discipline. In this context, nurse training was oriented to produce a cheap, subservient, readily available workforce armed with the basic knowledge of hospital and sanitary procedures. Nursing education is now concentrated in universities and colleges, augmented with symposia on credentialing, specialization, nursing research, and advanced medical technology. Nurses have promoted their occupation, sometimes through militant action, as a profession with distinct skills and privileges based on their claims to a unique body of nursing knowledge. This chapter is concerned with the development of nursing education in canada.
