M. Elizabeth Carnegie

RN, DPA, MS, PhD, FAAN
 

Born 1916

 

M. Elizabeth Carnegie has made significant contributions to the development of nursing as a profession, science and discipline. Dr. Carnegie has been a role model for teacher-scholars, academic administrators and organizational leaders, particularly within the African-American community.

M. Elizabeth Carnegie recalls her groundbreaking achievement as the first black nurse appointed to the board of the Florida Nurses Association. Even then, her struggle didn't end until 1949, when she was officially elected as a legitimate, not just courtesy member, of that board.

"Up until then, we were limited to [attending] maybe one business meeting," says Carnegie, author of The Path We Tread: Blacks in Nursing Worldwide, 1854-1994 (Jones and Bartlett Publishers, Third Edition, 2000). "That was the main thing that I fought for." When Carnegie ran for election to the board, she received the highest number of votes of any candidate and was elected first to a one-year term, then a three-year term.
