Springer Publishing Company was founded in 1950 by Bernhard Springer, the great-grandson of Julius Springer, who founded renowned STM publisher Springer in 1842. Though no longer owned by the Springer family, Springer Publishing has bolstered a reputation to rival its predecessor, establishing itself as a leader in the fields of nursing, behavioral and social sciences, and medical publishing. Today, Springer Publishing is an award-winning publisher of healthcare and behavioral sciences resources, featuring books, apps, journals, and digital products in the fields of nursing, public health, healthcare administration, social work, counseling, gerontology, and psychology, and, under the Demos Medical imprint, the specialties of neurology, oncology, and physical medicine and rehabilitation. According to the publisher, its digital learning products, textbooks, and nursing exam prep tools are designed for the way educators teach, practitioners work, and students learn.
