Madeleine M. Leininger



Madeleine M. Leininger


Madeline Leininger was a pioneer nurse anthropologist. Appointed dean of the University of Washington, School of Nursing in 1969, she remained in that position until 1974. Her appointment followed a trip to New Guinea in the 1960’s that opened her eyes to the need for nurses to understand their patients’ culture and background in order to provide care. She is considered by some to be the "Margaret Mead of nursing" and is recognized worldwide as the founder of transcultural nursing, a program that she created at the School in 1974. She has written or edited 27 books and founded the Journal of Transcultural Nursing to support the research of the Transcultural Nursing Society, which she started in 1974.
Dr. Leininger's web pages now reside on a discussion board. Dr. Leininger has provided downloads and answers to many common questions. Board users are encouraged to post questions to her discussion board about transcultural nursing, her theory, and her research. Dr. Leininger enjoys helping students and she responds to questions as her time permits. Board users are also encouraged to respond to each other.
Dr. Leininger has provided the following materials that can be downloaded on the discussion board: Sunrise Enabler (Sunrise Model), Information Pack about Dr. Leininger, Information on Dr. Leininger's 2005 Breakthrough Awards and Scholarships, Open Letter to Nurses with Contact Information.
