Student Scholarship

AAHN has long been committed to promoting and supporting student scholarship in the history of nursing. As part of this commitment, we are pleased to announce the 'Student Scholarship' section in our webpages.  

Whether you are a PhD student, have written a nursing history essay for your bachelor studies, or you have discovered a nurse in your family history, we would like to hear about your work. If you are unsure of your ideas, please contact me and I can support you towards publication.

Please send your manuscripts to Dr Jane Brooks - [email protected]

In order to commence this great venture AAHN are pleased to publish our first student scholarship essay by Amanda Gwinnup of the University of Huddersfield, UK. Amanda's supervisor is Professor Christine Hallett, the internationally renowned historian of First World War nursing. Our thanks to Amanda for this excellent essay.
