Not 'Just a Nurse'

Kennedy, Maureen Shawn MA, RN, AJN Editorial Director and Interim Editor-in-Chief

Errata

In the May Editorial, it was stated that the founding of the Henry Street Settlement occurred in 1983. In fact, it was founded in 1893. Also, in the June On the Cover, we stated: "Formal training for nurses in the United States began in 1873." Although Linda Richards, the first graduate of the New England Hospital for Women and Children in Boston, graduated in September 1873, she and four classmates were actually accepted into this nurse's training school in 1872.
