The History of Frontier Nursing Service
Join Dr. Susan Stone, President of Frontier Nursing University and certified nurse-
midwife, as she introduces the history of Mary Breckinridge (1881-1965) and the
Frontier Nursing Service. This presentation explores the creation of the first nurse-
midwifery service in the United States located in rural Kentucky. Frontier Nursing
Service was designed as a demonstration project and focused on dramatically improving
the health outcomes for rural families in an area with dire population health indicators.
Dr. Stone will delve into the strategies used by Mary Breckinridge to take her grand idea
and make it a reality. She will describe how the service came into being, how the nurse-
midwives worked to fulfill the mission, and implications for population health today.
