Welcome to the Homepage of the German Association for the History of Nursing

The goal of the German Association for the History of Nursing is to support research on the history of nursing and to integrate nursing history within the broader curriculum of the humanities and social sciences, and in particular in nursing studies. The association regards itself as an interdisciplinary forum that is open to all researchers and teaching academics who work in the field of the history of nursing. Institutions can also become members.

On October 9th, 2023, members of the GAHN met virtually for the yearly general meeting. Past and future activities of the GAHN were presented and discussed. Additionally, the ‘old’ board members became re-elected. Currently, the workbook about German nursing history is in the finishing process in order to become published next year.
