Description: The Board of Nursing takes seriously the challenge and responsibility of regulating nursing practice and education. Professional nursing had its beginning in Alabama in 1888 when three trained nurses arrived in Birmingham from the old Blockley Hospital in Philadelphia to take charge of the Almshouse. Soon other nurses followed in large numbers and physicians offices and hospitals in the state established training schools. The supply of nurses grew rapidly. The quality of nurses entering the state was of concern to resident nurses and the training schools were often questionable. A group of concerned nurses in Birmingham organized in 1913 and took measures to seek state government regulations for nurses and to protect the public against imposters. The legislature of Alabama responded to their efforts and passed the first Nurse Practice Act in 1915 thereby establishing an Alabama Board of Nurse Examination and Registration. Governor Charles Henderson signed the bill into law on August 6th, 1915.
