In Training: Nursing Education in New Hanover County
 1901 - 1966


But when we graduated, we received our pin and our graduate caps and the graduation ceremony was a big to-do… we had ours at First Christian Church on Oleander Drive and it was very similar to a lot of the church ceremonies.  We all were told what kind of uniforms to go down and buy … long uniforms with buttons up to here, beautiful uniforms.  White uniforms, white hose, white shoes and we were given our caps and or pins.
