While public nursing began in Scranton in 1895, it was not until 1912 that an organization was founded for city-wide service. The District Nurse Association (DNA), as it was originally called, obtained a charter on March 30, 1912. The Association was first established through the work of the Associated Charities and Humane Society of Lackawanna County and began as a citizen-founded, -sponsored, and -financed project. Mary F. Kiesel served as the first district nurse in 1895.
