Overview and metadata sections

Jessie May Scott’s distinguished career as an outstanding national and international nursing leader was accomplished by singlemindedly pursuing her goals to improve health care maintenance and delivery through advances in the role and education of nurses to benefit their patients, families and communities health.

Scott was born in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, on May 2, 1915, the daughter Chester A. and Eva M. Scott. She received a diploma from the Wilkes-Barre, General Hospital, School of Nursing (1936), a baccalaureate degree from the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, (1943) and a master’s degree from Teachers College, Columbia University, New York, (1949). Additional educational experience included post-master’s degree in counseling and guidance at Temple University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and seminars conducted at the Brooklings Institute, Washington, District of Columbia, on policy issues for senior federal executives.

Prior to 1955, Scott worked in private-duty nursing for four years, until 1940. From 1941-1943 she was employed as an infirmary nurse and as an assistant in biological sciences at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. From 1943-1947, Scott taught sciences courses, first at Mount Sinai Hospital and then Jefferson Medical College, both in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She served as general staff nurse and assistant science instructor at St. Luke’s Hospital in New York, New York, from 1947-1949. Before Scott entered federal service she was counselor and assistant executive secretary for the Pennsylvania Nurses Association’s Professional Counseling and Placement Service.

Scott’s career in the federal government spanned 24 years. In addition to domestic assignments, she was detailed to provide consultation and services to several chief nurses in foreign governments regarding nursing resources and education. In 1955, she joined the Division of Nursing Resources staff and become deputy in 1957. In 1960 when the Division of Nursing was formed, Scott was appointed Deputy Director, becoming Director in 1963. In 1970 Scott was promoted to the rank of Assistant Surgeon General. This was the first time in the history of the Public Health Service that Flag Rank had been given to the Director of this Division, thus serving as focal point for nursing in the Federal government.

During her tenure with the Division of Nursing, Scott served with prestige, status, and commitment to nursing’s visibility on the national scene. She administrated the Nurse Training Acts of 1964 and directed federal programs for nursing that improved the quality of education and practice. Scott supported nursing research to expand the scientific base for practice.

Scott was very active in international nursing. She provided consultation to the Directorate General of Health, Ministry of Health, India, in 1960 for a study on nursing, and was an official participant in the First International Seminar of the National League for Nursing in Israel (1972). For the five-year period 1975-1980 Scott was a member of the Health Resources Administration four-person team that was invited to Egypt to evaluate the Ministry of Health Nursing Program and recommend changes for effectiveness and efficiency.

In the United States, Scott was an active member and leader in much professional organization, including American Nurses Association, National League for Nursing, International Council of Nurses, American Public Health Association, Commissioned Officers Association, and the History of Nursing Archives Associates.

A few of the many honors Scott received while serving as Director, Division of Nursing, and then in retirement included the Distinguished Service Metal from the Public Health Service 1973; Meritorious Service Metal of the Public Health Service, 1970; the Adelaide Nutting Award for Leadership in Nursing, the Mc Manus Metal from Columbia University, and the Sigma Theta Tau International Mentor Award. In 1994 Scott was the recipient of the Lillian D. Wald Spirit of Nursing Award which was established by the Visiting Nurse Service of New York during its centennial celebration. Scott is a Fellow and Living Legend in American Academy of Nursing. The American Nurses Association, in addition, gives her honorary recognition by administering the Jessie M. Scott Award which is presented at the Association’s biennial convention. In addition, she holds fourteen honorary degrees in recognition for her contributions to humanity through the profession of nursing. Scott published in numerous journals and presented a myriad of major papers throughout her distinguished career.

Scott retired from the Division of Nursing, Public Health Service in 1979. Following her retirement she was a lecturer at George Mason University, Fairfax, Virginia, on international nursing issues, (1980); an Associate Professor at the University of Maryland, School of Nursing, developing and implementing the nursing policy specialty in the master’s program, the first in the country (1980-1982); and Adjunct Professor at the University of Texas, Austin (1982). She served on four major commissions and boards: Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools; American Academy of Nursing, Task Force on Organization Arrangements; International Nursing Committee at George Mason University; and Advisory Council on International Nursing Interchange Project. Scott was also a member of the Board of Overseers of the University of Pennsylvania, School of Nursing.
