This paper examines the Rockefeller Foundation's nursing program at the Colombo School of Nursing from 1948 to 1952. With a $20,000 grant and two North American nursing instructors, the Rockefeller Foundation sponsored a modern nursing education program in Sri Lanka. The project succeeded in spite of many obstacles.
