Editor's note: From its first issue in 1900 through to the present day, AJN has unparalleled archives detailing nurses' work and lives over the last century. These articles not only chronicle nursing's growth as a profession within the context of the events of the day, but they also reveal prevailing societal attitudes about women, health care, and human rights. Today's nursing school curricula rarely include nursing's history, but it's a history worth knowing. To this end, From the AJN Archives will be a frequent column, containing articles selected to fit today's topics and times.In this month's Editorial, editor-in-chief Maureen Shawn Kennedy writes about the U.S. Army and Navy nurses who were prisoners of war in the Philippines during World War II. Here is their incredible story, as told by one of the nurses, which originally appeared in the May 1945 -issue of AJN. The full article can be accessed at
