Nursing and the New Deal : We met the challenge.
The years of the great depression were marked with unemployment and economic ruin for many people.
Americans were left feeling helpless and hopeless.
After the 1932 presidental election of Franklin Roosevelt, his administration embarked on a course of government known as the New Deal.
Many new and innovative programs were established to create jobs and a sense of hope for the public.
This article will examine four programs that were of particular interest to nursing : the Federal Emergency Relief Act, the Civil Works Act, the Works Progress Act, and the Social Security Act.
Nurses of the time embraced these programs.
They participated in their development and implementation and made a difference in the lives of many desperate Americans.
