Nursing at 90

Nursing at 90

Posted in: by Lynn Sette on Thu, 09/19/2013 - 16:05

A celebration of the Yale School of Nursing Alumni. The exhibit highlights the contributions of the Nursing program and its graduates to Yale, the profession, and the world. Curated by Janene Batten with the help of Melissa Grafe.  On view in the Medical Library foyer until January 10, 2014.

In addition, as part of the 90th Anniversary of the Yale School of Nursing the Cushing/Whitney Medical Library has digitized the large collection of historical YSN alumni newsletters, memorabilia, and class photos dating from 1926.

The class photos speak for themselves, but as you will see, the alumni publications evolve in title and format, and provide a fascinating look into the school's equally proud and rich history. The newsletters cover the first years after the inaugural graduating class, and lead the reader through wars and peacetime, school relocations and new deans, societal changes and ideals, to the present-day YSN.

There are currently 294 items in the collection.
