Scope and Contents

The Southwest Center for Nursing History (SCNH) is the repository of three major statewide nursing organizations in Texas: the Texas Nurses Association (TNA), the Texas League for Nursing (TLN), and the Texas Occupational Health Nurses Association (TOHN). The TNA is the state branch of the American Nurses Association, the organization that speaks for the nursing profession in matters related to ethics, nursing practice, and nursing standards of care. The records contain information about the changing issues of concern to nurses in Texas and as they relate to the parent organization.

The TLN is the state branch of the National League for Nursing that controls the educational standards and accreditation of nursing schools. The records represent the changing concerns in nursing education.

The TOHN is comprised of nurses working in industry, their concerns being quite different from those in other work settings. The records reflect the evolution of the role of the occupational health nurse.

In addition, the Center for American History houses the records of many nurses who achieved national prominence. Included are Dorothy Blume, who was on the cutting edge of the nursing continuing education movement in the 1960s and 1970s; Marjorie Beyers, who participated in the National Commission for the Study of Nursing; and Billye Brown, who served as Dean of the University of Texas School of Nursing for 20 years and significantly increased the national ranking of the school.
