Overview and metadata sections

Rozella M. Schlotfeldt, R.N., Ph.D., F.A.A.N., nurse, educator, author and administrator, was born in DeWitt, Iowa, in 1914. Her father, John W. Schlotfeldt, was a businessman and her mother, Clara C. (nee Doering) Schlotfeldt, was a trained nurse. Widowed in her early thirties, her mother returned to private duty nursing when Rozella was a small child to support the family.

Rozella, the youngest of five daughters, graduated from her high school as class valedictorian in 1931. She attended the University of Iowa, which, at that time, offered a combined liberal arts and nursing program, and graduated magna cum laude with a B.S. degree in nursing in 1935. After graduating, she was offered a position with the University of Iowa Hospitals as a maternity staff nurse. The following year, 1936, Schlotfeldt took work as a staff (and later head) nurse of the U.S. Veterans Hospital in Des Moines, Iowa.

In 1939 she returned to the University of Iowa Hospitals as an instructor-supervisor of maternity nursing. This position, which she maintained for most of the war, was a dual appointment that included both classroom and clinical instruction and provoked her into "thinking about better ways to combine teaching and practice while experimenting with creative approaches that held promise for improving nursing care." Also during this time, Schlotfeldt completed a postgraduate program of study at New York Hospital where she gained valuable clinical experience and worked with patients of various ethnic and social backgrounds. In early 1944 she entered military service in the Army Nurse Corps. After basic training she was sent to serve in England, France, and finally Austria. Upon completion of her military service, Schlotfeldt entered graduate school in nursing. She received an S.M. from the University of Chicago in 1947 and spent the next year at the University of Colorado School of Nursing as an Assistant Professor. The position's administrative demands left little time for teaching. Disenchanted, Schlotfeldt resigned in favor of a post as assistant professor at the College of Nursing at Wayne University in Detroit. She remained there until 1955 when she resigned in order to pursue her Ph.D. at the University of Chicago.

Schlotfeldt completed her Ph.D. in 1956 with her dissertation "The Educational Leadership Role of Nursing School Executives and Faculty Satisfaction." She returned to Detroit in 1957 to become Wayne's associate dean for research and development. From 1960 to 1972 she served as the dean and professor of nursing at the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing at Case Western Reserve University.

During her association with the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing at Case Western Reserve University, Schlotfeldt developed her "Plan for Progress" for the educational system of nursing predicated on her collaboration model for nursing schools and health care agencies. This model integrates the clinical teaching, research, and practice responsibilities of faculty. Her plan redefines nursing's conceptual paradigm, i.e. "nursing is the appraisal and enhancement of the health status, health assets, and health potential of human beings and the preservation of the dignity appropriate to their humanity."

The cornerstone of Schlotfeldt's thinking about nursing education is the ND degree, or the profession's doctorate. Its implementation, as defined by Schlotfeldt, is meant to affirm nursing's place as a profession and recognized academic discipline among other health professions and to enable nursing to control its system of education. Schlotfeldt resigned as dean in 1972, but remained a professor emeritus and dean emeritus.

Schlotfeldt has held various national positions such as special consultant to the surgeon General's Advisory Group on Nursing (1961-1963) and the Walter Reed Army Institute for Nursing Research (1967-1974). She has served as president of the Ohio Board of Nursing Education and Nurse Registration (1971-1972); on the American Nurses Association Study Committee on Credentializing in Nursing; and on the governing council of the American Academy of Nursing. Honored numerous times by her peers and awarded several honorary doctorates, Schlotfeldt has remained active with many professional organizations and as a visiting professor, speaker, consultant, and author.

These papers span Schlotfeldt's professional life documenting her educational and academic experience as well as her awards and recognition as a nursing leader. These papers are comprised of an extensive collection of her addresses, articles, and files which reflect her association with various academic institutions and professional nursing organizations; personal correspondence, and photographs.
