  3. 5. “ There is a difference between medicine and nursing. The physicians take care of the medical aspects, which deal primarily with illness. We, in nursing, our emphasis is on prevention, health wellness. Nursing is very distinct from medicine. They are separate disciplines. Nurses, as Florence Nightingale said, must be teaching nurses. We are the ones who should take car of the education and practice of nursing. We collaborate with MDs, but in no way are we their handmaidens.” Dean Elizabeth C. Harkins, founder of USM School of Nursing 1980 “ No man, not even a doctor, ever gives any other definition of what a nurse should be than this -- 'devoted and obedient.' This definition would do just as well for a porter. It might even do for a horse. It would not do for a policeman. “ Florence Nightingale 1859

  5. 7. “ When I graduated from Mercy Hospital with my diploma in nursing in New Orleans, I was a technical nurse. But in those days, we were calling ourselves professional nurses. We were not professional…we were technical.. When we were taught the “how to” we did not get any kind of foundational principles, or understanding what governs this ‘how to’.”

That must have been quite a sight. After he said that USM would be the ideal place for a second BS program in nursing, I decided to venture further and ask, ‘Would you entertain the idea of having a Sister on your faculty?’ And he again, said yes.” </li></ul><ul><li>Sister Elizabeth Harkins, 1980 </li></ul>“ There is no force so powerful as an idea whose time has come” --Everett Dirksen

  25. 68. <ul><li>“ President McCain told me after I arrived at USM, ‘I have employed you to establish the school of nursing at this university. You know what you should do and have to do.

  28. 72. <ul><li>Nursing Students Spring 2008 </li></ul>
  29. 73. <ul><li>“ It was really Sister’s dream for how nursing should be, a culturally diverse profession. I was deeply moved by Sister Harkins’ love of humanity and respected her immensely. I still regret that she did not get to meet Miss Oseola McCartney*, but I bet heaven has not been the same since both of them arrived!” Miss McCartney stated that she had always wanted to be a nurse and that “I would have gone to nursing school at USM, if I could have.” </li></ul><ul><li>Kay Hobson, Assistant Professor, USM School of Nursing </li></ul><ul><li>*Miss McCartney, the washerwoman who made international headlines by donating her life’s fortune to USM, was made an honorary graduate of the School of Nursing in 1997. </li></ul>
  30. 74. <ul><li>“ The IODINE Project which Sister was most proud of for its success in increasing minorities in the nursing student body, involved significant risk-taking at the time. However, Sister was not afraid of taking risks when it came to educating nurses.    It was Sister's dream of increasing minorities in nursing, but also increasing the number of minority faculty in the College of Nursing.” </li></ul>Carole Jean Warren, administrative assistant to Sister Harkins
  31. 75. Miss Oseola McCartney is made “honorary graduate of USM School of Nursing” Kay Saucier Lundy, Kay Hobson, Dr. Elizabeth Carnegie

My primary role at USM has always been to administer and develop this program in nursing. </li></ul><ul><li>Dean Elizabeth Harkins, 1980 </li></ul>
  33. 78. <ul><li>“ I set the year 1985 for a doctoral program at this university and at THIS school of nursing. And we are the school for a doctoral program. We are within a truly academic setting where there is great value placed on research, publication and scholarly activity. I think it would be a mistake if a doctoral program in nursing is established any place other than the University of Southern Mississippi and I set the year 1985.” </li></ul><ul><li>Dean Elizabeth Harkins </li></ul><ul><li>1997 Ph.D. program in nursing approved </li></ul>
  34. 79. <ul><li>Sister Elizabeth Harkins, PhD, RN, FAAN, founding Dean of the University of Southern Mississippi School of Nursing, Named to Mississippi Nurses Association Hall of Fame at 2006 Mississippi Nightingale Awards </li></ul>

  36. 83. <ul><li>Students…. </li></ul>
  37. 85. <ul><li>Gulf Park Campus </li></ul>
  38. 86. <ul><li>“ I think another thing that attracted me to the school was we had a faculty that had been very stable. We had people that had started when the school was started; people that came on within the first five or six years of the school being established, and they were still here. And it was a very cohesive group, and you know, it was just, I thought, just a great opportunity, and a good situation to work in.” </li></ul>
  39. 87. <ul><li>“ I had not planned to be an administrator; that’s not what I wanted to do at all. I never wanted it except that early, early dream that I was going to be a director of nursing. I wanted to be department head of research.” </li></ul>

  42. 90. <ul><li>2008 and the future for the USM School of Nursing </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Changes in culture of health care </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Graduate education—the DNP </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What will the BSN be in ten years? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Retirement of nursing faculty </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Global opportunities </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Research and scholarship…is it possible to do it all? </li></ul></ul>
  43. 91. <ul><li>“ I always knew there was something better that we should be doing, something more that I needed to learn, and I always tried to keep myself moving in that direction.” </li></ul><ul><li>Dean Elizabeth C. Harkins </li></ul>
