Biography/History

Irma Lou Hirsch, born in Clay Center, Kansas in 1934, received her initial nursing education at the University Of Kansas School Of Nursing, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in nursing in 1957. After working for several years at Bethany Hospital in Kansas, Hirsch moved to Washington State where she graduated from the University of Washington with a Masters degree in nursing in 1961. She next worked in faculty and administrative posts at Duke University, the University of Kansas Medical Center and the University of Missouri.

Beginning in 1973, Ms. Hirsch began her work with the ANA. Hirsch left her position at the ANA for a brief period when she accepted a position at the Kansas City Veterans Administration (VA) Hospital where she set up that organization’s computerized nurse-staffing program. Returning to the ANA in 1980, Hirsch, who was assigned to the Congress of Nursing Practice, working on a number of significant ANA program initiatives such as the Social Policy Statement, the Taxonomy Task Force, and re-organization of the constituent members. Hirsch left the ANA in 1993.

Scope and Contents

The Hirsch papers are rich source of data on a number of ANA projects in which Hirsch was significantly involved and were of critical importance to the profession. A major part of the collection consists of the project files for the Quality Assurance Program of the 1970s, implemented through workshop training and outreach program. The papers also include a substantial number of ANA publications such as annual meeting programs and newsletters, many of which are difficult to locate from other sources and serve as a rich resource of materials on professional nursing activities in the later decades of the 20th century. Of particular interest to researchers is the vast amount of data on issues raised by computerization and quality assurance requirements. The Hirsch papers contain a noteworthy amount of material on critical issues faced by the profession, as well as the ways in which the ANA met the challenges posed by a more complex system of health care delivery.
