Dorothy E. Johnson

BSN 1942 - Distinguished Alumna



Recognized for her prolific writings on the subject of nursing theory. Her many publications profoundly influenced theoretical thinking in nursing during the second half of the 20th Century. She held a strong conviction that continuing improvement of care was the ultimate goal of nursing. Her 1968 paper, entitled “One Conceptual Model of Nursing,” was a classic contribution to nursing literature. After her retirement, she remained active as a speaker and advocate for nursing education.
