The Life of Hanna Chrzanowska

Authored by Gosia Brykczynska
Edition: 1

Biography of a Catholic Polish registered nurse, Hanna Chrzanowska (1902 -1973), who practiced community nursing in Independent Poland and then under the communist regime to help people in need.
Hanna was an unusual nurse, travelling on Rockefeller Scholarships, writing poetry and novels. She was also a great Polish patriot. During the Second World War, her tireless work with the homeless and refugees in Kraków significantly reduced mass hunger and outright starvation in the over-crowded city. After the war, Hanna, established and coordinated Parish Nursing. She worked for most of her professional life as a qualified nursing instructor in the field of community nursing. She was also a very spiritual and compassionate person. Hanna Chrzanowska has now been acknowledged by the Holy See as being worthy of the title Venerable Servant of God and hopefully one day will be declared a saint of the Roman Catholic Church.
She is a fitting model for today's generation of nurses and healthcare workers.
