Archives of Caring in Nursing

The Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing is dedicated to caring: advancing the science, studying its meaning, practicing the art, and living it day-to-day.

The Archives of Caring in Nursing has as its mission preserving the history of caring in nursing; inviting the study of caring; advancing caring as an essential domain of nursing knowledge; and creating meaning for the practice of nursing.

We are committed to securing the papers of Caring scholars, and developing and maintaining the Archives to provide access to primary sources. Marlaine Smith, Dean, invites you to consider contributing your work to the Archives. You may contact her at marlaine.smith@fau.edu or 561-297-3206.
