dc.description.abstractThe School of Nursing at Heidelberg University was founded in 1953 on the initiative of the Rockefeller Foundation to generate new, scientifically trained nursing elite to advance the professionalization of nursing in West Germany. The ``American'' concept met massive resistance. Its ``superior nursing training'' was seen as creating ``Hollywood nurses''-a threat to the traditional Christian understanding of good, caring nursing. Intense social conflicts also caused problems with other groups of nurses. The school nevertheless played a very important role as a ``cadre academy'' in the history of professionalization. Many of the first German professors in the nursing sciences trained or underwent further training in Heidelberg.
