Harriet Tubman as a nurse

  1. I have a 5 minute oral presentation on Harriet Tubman and her contributions to Nursing due on Wednesday. While there is a wealth of information about her and what an instrumental figure she was in freeing over 300 slaves the most that I can find about her in relation to nursing is that she served as a "contraband" nurse in the union army in the civil war. That's it. Do you think it's too far of a strech to equate her rescuing slaves to caring for others to nursing?

    I feel like I'm missing something here. It seems like everyone else drew easy people like Florence Nightingale, Dorthea Dix and others that have multiple pages of information in our book and on the internet.

    This might help you...you may have to scroll down a little bit to the part about Harriett Tubman's nursing career. It is a short section, but it may offer some insight. Good Luck!

    Thank you! It's more than I had before. Hopefully it'll be enough.
