About This Item

Jill Carey, BA, M. Ed, Catherine Pate, Frederic A. Sharf

This book provides insights into the fashionable nurse as profiled through the industrial and modern eras. The significant relationship between dress and societal perception enabled women to progress into occupational membership by incorporating an image which merged fashionable trends with virtuous dedication. As the nursing occupation took shape, uniforms were established to display distinct styles that were functionally attractive while displaying personal confidence, group membership and status.
