Janet Douglass started her nursing career as a diploma graduate; her first position was at Beth Israel Hospital, Boston, in what was called the admission. She then worked in the emergency room of a small city hospital, and five years later took a teaching position in her home school while starting a bachelor’s degree at Boston University. She taught briefly at Boston College before completing a doctoral program in nursing at Boston University, where she later taught in and chaired the graduate Community Health Department.
Douglass’ research interests during graduate work included study of the outcomes of care for patients in the then-new day surgery facilities. Since completing a Doctorate in Nursing Science at Boston University, she has worked on studies, including one investigating the health and safety practices perceptions of vocational-technical school auto-technician students, and an oral history project related to the development of university-level nursing programs in the Merrimack Valley (Massachusetts).
