Abstract

Tanya Langtree studied the evolution of nursing praxis between the sixteenth and mid-nineteenth centuries. Tanya found pre-professionalised nursing practice was scientifically informed and aimed to restore health, promote comfort and prevent complications. These findings disrupt assumptions about early nursing and encourages the profession to reframe its understanding of the past.
