Undated photo of a Visiting Nurse Service of New York nurse with an older New Yorker. (This makes me think of one of my favourite childhood books, 'Cherry Ames, Visiting Nurse'.) Wonderful service, wonderful nurses.
st. anthony’s nurses, 1933. Nursing has come a long way. I still remember graduating from nursing school in 1984 and we still had to wear our hats at the Catholic Hospital I worked for. It wasn't until a year later that they let us wear pant uniforms and no hats (so scandalous!!)
