In the sixteenth century, nursing in Spain underwent profound changes resulting in the development of a new concept of caring. Many written manuals recorded these changes which transformed hospitals. With the discovery of the Americas, part of this knowledge was passed down to those living in the New World and merged with traditional practices of the native cultures. Today, Spanish libraries and archives preserve important documentation regarding this process. This seminar will include presentation of a sample of a virtual exhibition entitled: “500 Years of Nursing in Spain and America through its Books and Documents, 1430-1930.” The virtual exhibit consists of over 100 images, fragments of our common Nursing Legacy, from Spain to Florida and Louisiana.
