Edith Brodie worked hard to improve nursing, changing the name from Vanderbilt Hospital Training School for Nurses to the School of Nursing of Vanderbilt University. Brodie was also pivotal in the field of nursing throughout the state, co-organizing the Tennessee League of Nursing Association. She remained at Vanderbilt until 1930.
