About Us

The Department of History thrives on its close relationship with many other departments, centers and area studies programs in the humanities and social sciences at Cornell. The faculty includes more than a dozen prize-winning authors as well as winners of Cornell’s prestigious teaching and advising awards.

In my nursing career, I have studied and been fascinated by the history of nursing, especially in the US. I have never forgotten that I stand on the shoulders of many who struggled and suffered in their attempts to bring dignity and respect to the work that I so appreciate.
