Discussion Board -WWI
World War I During 1917 and 1919 over 22,000 professionally-trained female nurses were recruited by the American Red Cross to serve in the U.S. Army and more than
1,500 nurses served in the U.S. Navy during this period, and several hundred worked for the American Red Cross (Jones, 2012). During this time nurses were exposed to
sickness, infections and physical strain. Helen Dore Boylston one of the many nurses that served during WWI, expressed in her book the physical strain experienced due
to making beds and changing dressings of the wounded. This frequent changing of dressings and application of antiseptic, though physically exhausting, served a
critical medical function in the pre-antibiotic era, not only did it become the most effective method for healing infected war wounds but prevented many limb
amputations(Jones, 2012). Alexis Carrel and Henry Dakin discovered a method of cleansing wounds which was chlorine solution that would not injure already damaged
tissue, the Dakin’s solution which in present day is still being used (Judd, 2014).
Due to the war nurses became precedence that there were posters by the Red Cross and military to attract “middle class women and high school or college students”
interested in nursing (Judd, 2014). Women were granted more opportunities than just being wives or homemaker.
It is intriguing to know that nurses during that era contributed to the profession with the limited resources that they had as compared to now. They had to adapt to
certain environments, work under harsh conditions or even adapt new form of medical care to save lives and therefore it’s important to remember that these women
sacrificed and showed courageousness.
