Biography/History

Florence S. Downs’ distinguished career as a scholar, mentor, editor, researcher and educator shaped the foundation of nursing through her writings and active involvement in nursing education and research. Downs was born in New York on August 20, 1925, the daughter of Charles H. and Marion R. Gregory Downs. She received a diploma from St Luke’s Hospital School of Nursing in 1947 and worked for six years as a public health nurse in New York City. In 1960, while in the doctoral program in the College of Education at New York University, she held her first teaching position as instructor in the Division of Nursing. In 1964, upon completion of the Ed.D. degree, Downs was promoted to assistant professor and appointed Director of the Training Program in Psychiatric Nursing. In 1968 she was promoted to associate professor and appointed Director of Post-Master’s Programs and Research. She was promoted to professor in 1972 and remained at New York University until 1977. Under her direction, the first computer-based course in the country was developed at New York University. Downs also secured the first federal support under the Nurse Scientists Program awarded to a nursing program. For the first time, students could receive scholarships for doctoral study in nursing rather than in anther field.

In 1977, Downs was appointed Associate Dean and Director of Graduate Studies at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing. At Penn she was responsible for establishing the doctoral program, the first in nursing at an Ivy League university. At Penn, Downs also obtained the first federal funding in the form of a doctoral emphasis grant. This grant supported faculty and student research as a means of strengthening the doctoral program. In 1994, Downs retired to become professor emeritus. She remained active with universities nationally and internationally as a visiting professor and as a consultant on graduate curricula and research.

In 1979, Downs accepted the editorship of the journal Nursing Research and remained editor until 1994. She was the first academic editor. Her scholarship and expertise in research and methods reflected wit and wisdom in at least 27 of her editorials. During her tenure as editor of this foremost research journal, both the circulation of the periodical and knowledge of the field was brought to new heights.

Downs was the author and co-author of several books. She published three editions of A Source Book of Nursing Research with Margaret Newman and wrote A Handbook of Research Methodology. She published 80 articles including editorials focusing on scholarship and research in nursing. She also presented numerous papers at conferences, conventions and universities.

She was active with several professional organizations in nursing. Downs served on the Commission on Nursing, Council of Nurse Researchers, for the American Nurses Association, and on the National League for Nursing Research Committee. She was associated with the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company Maternity, Infant Care-Family Planning Project.

During her life Downs was recipient of many honors including the National League for Nursing, Martha E. Rodgers Award for Scholarly Contributions to Nursing Science; Sigma Theta Tau, Elizabeth M. Miller National Award for Excellence in Research, and was inducted as a ‘Living Legend’ into the American Academy of Nursing.

Florence S. Downs died September 8, 2005.
