Book Review: Learning the Healer’s Art: Nursing Education at Brigham Young University
Learning the Healer’s Art: Nursing Education at Brigham Young University by Elaine Shaw Sorensen Marshall was commissioned for the 60th anniversary of the College of Nursing. Unlike most history books, Learning the Healer’s Artleaves the reader wanting to know more.
Elaine Marshall doesn’t tell about the history of the College of Nursing in a typical chronological order based on the deans. Instead, she focuses each chapter on major trials and triumphs such as the transition from the LDS Hospital of Nursing to the BYU School of Nursing to the BYU College of Nursing. Mixed in with her commentary, Marshall includes many vignettes from students, alumni, and faculty.
At the back of this beautiful book, there are several appendices that include lists of the first graduating classes, faculty members, and some devotional speeches by deans of the college.
