The ECBCNHI is dedicated to the preservation and study of nursing history and its contributions to the shaping of the American health care system. This distinctive position requires an eminent historian of nursing who will have opportunities to work with faculty, staff, and students in schools and departments across UVA Grounds.

The ECBCNHI, housed in the School of Nursing, is one such center. It is recognized internationally for its innovative educational programs and cutting edge research in the history of nursing. It has been successful in garnering grant support, with its faculty generating numerous award-winning scholarly publications and presentations and serving as officers of national nursing history associations.
