Because many towns became battlefields during the war, local women often inadvertently became frontline nurses. Hospitals were set up anywhere: churches, homes, town halls, and streets. Other women left their homes to care for wounded troops on the front lines, seeing battle and its ravages

In the United States Nurse Anesthesia can be traced back to the late nineteenth century. In the 1800s during the Civil War they gave anesthesia to wounded soldiers on the battlefield (Hamric, Hanson, Tracy & O’Grady, 2014, p. 2). To become A CRNA you must be an advanced practice nurse with a certification in anesthesia.
Furthermore, the profession of nursing grew which created many different types of nurses. A nurse anesthetist’s background began back during the Civil War because nurses began giving soldiers anesthesia to help stabilize their pain. It’s from this is that the specialty of anesthesia began. Which is why the profession of anesthesia is difficult to accomplish. Even after WW1, nurses started to show their true reason why they are needed in any operating room.
Introduction: “How important it is to celebrate our Hero’s and She-roes.” - Maya Angelou This timeless quote by Maya Angelou speaks the truth about gender differences and how important it is to recognize both genders and celebrate their presence in the different components of life; especially in our military. Through research this paper brings together the importance of gender differences and the gender accommodations that are lacking within the military. Background and History The military has a long history of acceptance with women working in the armed forces. History dates back to the American Revolution (1775-1783) when women served as battlefield nurses, water bearers, cooks, laundresses and saboteurs. (Women in the military, 2008) Women working in these roles continued through the Civil War and the Spanish-American war.
The Northern government however seemed to be more unified and was able to accomplish more. The fact that the North also had a stronger leader helped them to eventually win the war. 3. How did the war affect the lives of women in the North and South? The war had a massive impact on the roles and lives of women in both the North and the South.
Even though women were given these roles they still wanted to contribute to the fight despite the exclusionary rule and policies. The Army and Navy Nurse Corps offered the opportunity of nurses to serve in an official capacity in the military. It was established in the early 1900’s nurses working closer to the front lines than they had ever before. With the expanding roles of the women during the war it created numerous new challenges, social and economic
She was only seven, it frightened her so much! She only told Bailey, who told their mother, who told the cops. Mr. Freeman was in jail for only one day, and the day after he was released he was found murdered. Maya thought she did the wrong thing by telling, she didn’t understand because she was so young.

Clara had the Red Cross founded after visiting Europe for rest (Redcross.org), where a treaty was signed for the Red Cross to help anyone. After coming back, she thought the United States needed a organization of itself. So, she worked to get the same treaty passed in the United State’s government.

Women serving as nurses were often motivated by “a sense of duty, a close connection to loved ones, serving overseas or a desire to have an adventure”. (Great War Nurses, n.d.) Women’s roles as nurses during World War One were highly significant as they helped the wounded and sick. Although they were so important they did not have the amount of appreciation than the soldiers did fighting. The nurses put in a lot of effort and worked very hard throughout the time of war and should 've got more credit for what they did. The amount of work that nurses undertook and what they had to go through is reflected in this letter written by Gertrude Doherty (a nurse who served in World War One writing to her cousin Muriel in

It was natural that women were the nurses and the caregivers, because they were caretakers of children, family and the community (Mary Ann Bickerdyke).

It took two centuries before the public viewed hospitals as prestigious and safe. The Civil War gave enormous impulsion to the building of hospitals and to the development of nursing as a
