The contribution of the Grey Nuns to the development of nursing in Canada: Historiographical issues

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • The purpose of this article includes describing the current state of historical knowledge about the Grey Nuns of Montreal, identifying issues which shed light on this state of knowledge and proposing new avenues of scholarship. A review of the literature shows that the nursing role of the Grey Nuns and their national contribution to the development of health care services require examination. The small number of publications about the Grey Nuns, specifically in respect to their role in the development of nursing services, can be linked to issues in Canadian historiography and trends in women's history, health science history, and nursing history.
