Dear Professor and Classmates—

For this post, I chose Isabel Hampton Robb. As stated at the beginning of the chapter reading, she was “First president of the American Nurses Association” and “Organized the Nurses’ Associated Alumnae of the United States and Canada” (Judd & Sitzman, pg 83, 2014). However, that is just the beginning.

Isabel Robb was born a Canadian in 1860 as one of seven children to English immigrants. She was first a teacher but due to contract limitations, nursing was to become her second career. Overhearing a conversation between coworkers bored with their current teaching assignment, applications to Bellevue School of Nursing were sent for and she subsequently started her education there in 1881. She gained a reputation for intelligence in the classroom and meticulousness inpatient care, however; this second trait made her slower than most and her questions during class did not endear her to her classmates.

After graduation, she accepted a position overseas with St. Paul’s House for Trained Nurses in Rome, Italy where over the next 18 months she had the opportunity to practice in Germany and France as well. She returned to the United States in 1885 where she took up a position in nursing administration in the Illinois Training School as Superintendent. It is here that she was able to develop a curriculum of study and ethics and as a result “the school was classed with the best in the country” (Moody, 1938). In 1889 she was recruited from her position in Illinois by John Hopkins Hospital to work on their training program to much the same effect and success.

In 1893, at the World’s Fair in Chicago, she was the chair for the first major meeting of nursing leaders. She prepared for this by corresponding directly with Florence Nightingale for guidance on the criteria for nursing education standards. She worked towards admission requirements and an established curriculum. In working to network trained nurses, she started the Association of Nursing Alumni which developed over time to the American Nurses Association (Repaving, 2011).

To further contribute to nursing education standards, she authored the textbook ‘Nursing: It’s Principals and Practice for Hospital and Private Use’ which became a mainstay in the curriculum for several years. After marriage, she then wrote Nursing Ethics to help establish standards of ideals and conduct.

Other organizations that she was a member of were: American Red Cross Nursing Service, International Council of Women, International Council of Nurses, Committee member of the International Educational Standard, and a lecturer at Teachers College in Cleveland (Moody, 1938).

It is in Cleveland that she met with a horrible street accident in 1910 and was crushed between two street cars. A memorial trust fund in her honor still provides scholarships to graduate nurses to advance their education and so her legacy lives on to this day.

Thank you,

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
