An intimate look at the life of a student nurse during the Great Depression and World War II and the mid-century era. Can you imagine a time when nursing students lived at the hospital, were forbidden to marry as long as they were enrolled, and had to shell peas during “breaks” in the day? Exhibit highlights include vintage nursing uniforms, photographs, year books, personal effects, and a special exposé on a Presidential Tri-State nursing student.
The museum is open to be public by appointment. If you wish to have a guided tour of the museum exhibits, you should contact the Museum Curator, Jim Roberts at (318) 212-8472 or email him to set up a weekday appointment
