The historical research design is used to document the contributions that Misses Ruth Nita Barrow, Gertrude Hildegarde Swaby and Julie Symes made in advancing the status of professional nursing education in Jamaica, between 1946 and 1986. Their roles in the Jamaica General Trained Nurses Association and the General Nursing Council of Jamaica in obtaining registration for nurses' education in Jamaica, reciprocal agreement with England and Wales and professional recognition from the International Council of Nurses are discussed. Since nearly two decades of Barrow, Swaby and Symes' contributions to professional nursing's development occurred while Jamaica was a British colony, the economic, political and social forces of the era and the impact these had on their contributions are discussed. Because their contributions extended to the other English-speaking Caribbean territories, the factors that influenced Barrow, Swaby and Symes' involvement and the impact that they had on regional nursing education development are discussed. The leadership that emerged from their contribution with respect to influence, commitment, credibility, visibility, networking, and mentoring are analyzed.
