Record type: Article


The nursing profession has been influenced by its historical context and, therefore, has evolved accordingly. This paper describes the evolution of nursing in Spain from the mid nineteenth century up to the early 1950s, emphasising the historical period of the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939). This study is based on legislative texts which refer to the nursing profession: Gaceta de Madrid, Gaceta de la República, Boletín Oficial del Estado.
The article has been subdivided into three sections according to chronological criteria:
-From the mid nineteenth century to the beginning of the Spanish Civil War
-The Spanish Civil War
-The Post-war
Critical Discourse Analysis is proposed within the methodology as the main interpretive framework. This methodological approach will be used within this particular project in order to analyse and interpret historical documents.
Nursing development in Spain during the twentieth century is a suitable area for research. This paper proposes the utilisation of practical data, obtained from different sources of information, in order to complete the perspective offered by the texts analysed so far; for example, Nursing Schools, hospitals or Faculties of Medicine.
