University of Massachusetts Cap on Display

IMG_0302 The Museum of Nursing History is pleased to share with our website viewers and museum visitors, a 1970s cap from the University  of Massachusetts.  The addition of this cap brings the total number of caps on display to eighty-five!
The black velvet band was applied upon graduation and K-Y jelly was used to secure the ribbon to the cap.  Nurses are always so ingenious and creative in their problem solving.
The University of Massachusetts consists of five campuses within the public university system of the commonwealth of Massachusetts.
