Elizabeth Kenny: A Great Life

Satisfactory Essays
Elizabeth Kenny lived a great life. Born on September 20, 1880, she was the daughter of farmer Michael Kenny and Mary nee Moore. She got very little schooling, some from small schools, the rest from her mother. As for nursing, she probably interned at a nearby hospital or learned from a midwife. Her love for help people came from when she was little, when she broke her wrist. The doctor inspired her and was one of the ways she got into the Army to be a nurse. With the doctor’s letter to qualify her for the job, she worked hard and gained the title, “Sister Kenny”. She was called that for the rest of her life. While working for the Army, she created the “Sylvia Stretcher,” which was made to reduce shock from ambulance rides.
