The Barbara Bates Center for the Study of the History of Nursing is the preeminent nursing history archive and research center in the world.  

Our priority is to increase understanding of the importance of nursing history and health care to the development of effective health policy and patient care strategies. 

The faculty, fellows, and visiting scholars create scholarly papers and books that tie nursing’s history directly to current health topics. Our work in the history of nursing provides the evidence necessary for a better understanding of the nation’s health care problems and the strategies required for resolving current critical issues.
