Biography/History

The Pennsylvania League for Nursing (PLN), a constituent member of the National League for Nursing, represents nurses and other health care professionals interested in fostering the development of nursing and comprehensive health care services. Founded in 1953 to serve both professional and lay persons of Pennsylvania and headquartered in Harrisburg, the PLN was formed with the purpose "to foster the development and improvement of hospital, industrial, public health, and other organized nursing services and of nursing education, through the coordinated action of nurses, allied professional groups, citizens, agencies and schools to the end...that the nursing needs of the people of Pennsylvania shall be met."

The agency has held annual conventions since 1953 and was actively involved in accreditation of schools of nursing under the National League for Nursing. In 1989, the PLN closed their Harrisburg office and donated their inactive records to the Center.

Biography/History

The Pennsylvania Nurses' Association was founded in 1903 by nurses "feeling the need of organization, legislation and registration in the state of Pennsylvania." The immediate objective was for a registration law to control education and entry into the nursing profession, but the specific orientation of regional groups and specialized nurses soon caused the association to branch out in a variety of directions. By 1919, the state association had become unwieldy, and districts were formed to better respond to the needs of individual nurses and regional interests within the state. On April 30, 1919, the Philadelphia District Number 1, along with several others, was admitted to membership.

The concerns of District 1, from its inception, revolved around the establishment of a central headquarters with an official registry of nurses. Lack of interest, however, prevented effective action until the Nurses' Official Directory was established in 1929 to facilitate employment. Shortly after, both interest and membership rose dramatically. The Philadelphia district developed into one of the most active sections, involved in legislative actions in all areas of health care, professional promotion, publicity and education, as well as in many community activities.

Biography/History

The Pennsylvania League for Nursing (PLN), a constituent member of the National League for Nursing, represents nurses and other health care professionals interested in fostering the development of nursing and comprehensive health care services. Founded in 1953 to serve both professional and lay persons of Pennsylvania and headquartered in Harrisburg, the PLN was formed with the purpose "to foster the development and improvement of hospital, industrial, public health, and other organized nursing services and of nursing education, through the coordinated action of nurses, allied professional groups, citizens, agencies and schools to the end...that the nursing needs of the people of Pennsylvania shall be met."

The agency has held annual conventions since 1953 and was actively involved in accreditation of schools of nursing under the National League for Nursing. In 1989, the PLN closed their Harrisburg office and donated their inactive records to the Center.

Biography/History

The Pennsylvania Nurses' Association was founded in 1903 by nurses "feeling the need of organization, legislation and registration in the state of Pennsylvania." The immediate objective was for a registration law to control education and entry into the nursing profession, but the specific orientation of regional groups and specialized nurses soon caused the association to branch out in a variety of directions. By 1919, the state association had become unwieldy, and districts were formed to better respond to the needs of individual nurses and regional interests within the state. On April 30, 1919, the Philadelphia District Number 1, along with several others, was admitted to membership.

The concerns of District 1, from its inception, revolved around the establishment of a central headquarters with an official registry of nurses. Lack of interest, however, prevented effective action until the Nurses' Official Directory was established in 1929 to facilitate employment. Shortly after, both interest and membership rose dramatically. The Philadelphia district developed into one of the most active sections, involved in legislative actions in all areas of health care, professional promotion, publicity and education, as well as in many community activities.
