Goodrich, when she authored this volume, was Dean of the Yale University School of Nursing. Goodrich "envisioned the nursing and medical professions as equals, independent yet interdependent, each possessing a unique body of knowledge. In an age when nurses received their training in hospital schools of nursing, she charted a course for recognition of nursing's status and dignity. Goodrich's efforts introduced nursing to the univeristy and pioneered the inclusion of preventive-medicine and community-nursing courses in the curriculum." [American Nursing, v. 1, p. 145].
