The Nursing History Center at the University of Virginia Is Renamed

The University of Virginia recently renamed its nursing history center the Eleanor Crowder Bjoring Center for Nursing Historical Inquiry. It is one of only two nursing history centers in the United States and one of six worldwide. Funding for the center was provided by Eleanor Bjoring, a long-time nursing educator at the University of Texas.

All undergraduate and graduate students in nursing at the University of Virginia are required to take a course on nursing history.
