This exhibit highlights many significant nurses in North Carolina from the founding of the profession through today. From tumble down cabins to chrome plated surgical suites, African American, Native American and White nurses have provided care under extreme circumnstances from the bombing of Pearl Harbor to the terrorist attacks of September 11th. Nurses work often goes unnoticed, despite the education, knowledge and skills nurses use every day to save lives and improve the quality of life for all. This exhibit honors the work and lives of women and men who have spent their careers making the world a better place.
