North Carolina Baptist Hospital School of Nursing

From 1923 to 1974 North Carolina Baptist Hospital operated a nursing school.  Although the school no longer exists, its alumni remain very active and proud of their alma mater.  Graduates of the North Carolina Baptist Hospital School of Nursing work closely with the Dorothy Carpenter Medical Archives in order to preserve the history of the school.  The Archives maintains a large collection of nursing materials and is grateful to the nurses for donating their artifacts as well as helping to support the preservation of those artifacts.

This online exhibit shares parts of the Nursing School Collection with internet users.  As it is nearly impossible to put an entire collection online, visitors are encouraged to view the Nursing Collection in person by visiting the Archives.  Items in the Nursing School collection include personal collections, textbooks, yearbooks, scrapbooks, textiles, photographs and school transcripts, among other items.
