We appreciate our donors who keep nursing history alive. The Museum looks forward to receiving new stories and old items from those who studied nursing and worked as nurses. We greatly appreciate the family donors who honored retired nurses and those nurses who have passed on by donating their caps, pins, diplomas, photos, notebooks, uniforms and a variety of tools nurses have used in the past.
