Biography/History

Ellen Davidson Baer (born 1939) received her baccalaureate degree from Columbia University Presbyterian Hospital School of Nursing in 1962. She continued her education at New York University earning both her master’s and doctoral degrees. Dr. Baer initially began her illustrious career as a clinical nurse working with acutely ill adults before transitioning into and advocating for the nurse practitioner in the 1970s. Before joining the University of Pennsylvania in 1980, she worked at Lehman College and City University of New York teaching nurse practitioners.

At Penn, Dr. Baer directed a federally funded program in oncology for graduate students in addition to another demonstration project for undergraduate students to have clinical experiences caring for AIDS patients. Along with her teaching responsibilities, she was the Associate Director of the Barbara Bates Center for the Study of the History of Nursing. She also served as the director of the nursing doctoral program at her alma mater and was a Fulbright Senior Scholar at the University of Athens. In 1998 Dr. Baer joined the University of Miami as the Wallace Gilroy Visiting Professorship at the School of Nursing, made possible by the Hugoton Foundation.

A prolific writer, Dr. Baer focused on creating a voice for nursing past and present by examining contemporary issues through their historical context. Topics of issues range from the struggles of nursing educators in the academic workplaces to the dangers of hospital and healthcare restructuring to women’s roles to finding a voice for nursing. Dr. Baer’s research has been supported by the National Center for Nursing Research, the Division of Nursing of the United States Public Health Service, and the Helene Fuld Health, the results of which she has published widely in books and journals. She is co-editor of Enduring Issues in American Nursing and  Nurses’ Work: Issues Across Time and Space. Dr. Baer has received numerous honors throughout her memorable career. Awards include the AJN Book of the Year, the Lavinia L. Dock, the AAHN Distinguished Nurse Research Award, the ANA Centennial Nursing Heritage Award as well as the Columbia University Alumni Medal.
