Abstract: Doing God's work through vocation and caring for the less fortunate has been a long-time focus of the Catholic faith. In the early 20th century Catholic orders of nuns made major contributions to nursing education and clinical practice. This historical research article illustrates the sisters' vast influence on nursing as they introduced spirituality into quality patient care.
