Interview Summary

Caroline Standley first learned about the Frontier Nursing Service in Louisville in the early 1960s and visited Hyden in 1974 with an English nurse-practitioner. On that trip, she became aware of issues in FNS nursing, such as the tradition of the academic-degree nurse versus the concept of compassionate care. Standley also talks about fundraising with the Boston Committee and the organization of the FNS Preview. Having joined the Board of Governors in 1976, she explains the relationship of the Board of Governors to the administration and the staff. She emphasizes that her role has been that of an organizer and that she knows very little about nursing. The point is made that a communication problem presently exists between the local people and the FNS concerning the operation of remaining FNS centers. Standley also discusses the financial aspects of FNS operations.
