Profile of a Leader - Mary Agnes Snively: Realistic Optimist
This paper examines the leadership Mary Agnes Snively gave to Canadian nursing during the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth century with a particular focus on her practical views regarding nursing education. Although surrounded by the Victorian values of her day, Snively developed a vision of nursing education that was both optimistic and realistic. This investigation of Snively's ideas as they were articulated in papers she presented to the American Society of Superintendents of Training Schools for Nurses in 1895 and 1898, is further testament to the validity of the accolade, "Mother of Nurses in Canada," given her in 1924 by her biographer.
