Rowan Memorial Hospital School of Nursing Yearbooks Now On DigitalNC

DigitalNC is now home to 16 Rowan Memorial Hospital School of Nursing yearbooks thanks to our partners at Rowan Public Library. These yearbooks cover the years 1950-1971.

Rowan Memorial Hospital, where the student nurses studied and worked, is located in Salisbury, NC, right in the middle of the state. The School of Nursing opened up in 1903 and the first class graduated in 1907 (The White Cap [1950], image 14). These yearbooks, appropriately titled The White Cap, reflect on the year’s activities, from clubs to nursing courses.
