The 1990s brought a new generation of scholars that reshaped the discipline of the history of nursing. These scholars, practitioners (nurses who saw history as a way to think about critical current problems) who realized the power formalized training in historical methods could bring to their research and scholarship, sought out interdisciplinary collaborations to bring broader standpoints to larger historical questions that the history of nursing could answer. This essay will examine works of this more recent group of scholars to chart the directions that the history of nursing in the United States has taken.
