Thanks to the generosity of VUSN alumni who sent in items to the School, some of VUSN’s historical memorabilia is now on display in the School’s Atrium and items will be rotated throughout the year.  The first complete display features a cadet uniform of Elizabeth White Cleino, BSN ‘44.  The red epaulets and cadet patch were worn on the uniform of Ann Moore Crain, BSN ‘47-A.  The cover of Harper’s Bazaar magazine from November, 1943, depicts a nurse cadet winter uniform.

The background picture is Gloria Canady, VUSN freshman, shown modeling the summer outdoor uniform of the U.S. Cadet Nurse Corps.  Elsie McGill Tinkler, BSN ‘47-A, is pictured in the oval frame wearing her winter cadet uniform.  The nursing cadet patch, pins and nurse corps membership card were issued to and donated by Virginia George, BSN ‘47-B.
