Welcome to the Archives

The Center for Nursing History has an exciting collection of nursing memorabilia from New York State and beyond. Would you like to learn more about individual nurse leaders in their own words? How about schools of nursing? Or view a collection of infant feeders from around the world? All this and more is available through the Archives.


The Veronica M. Driscoll Center for Nursing has an archive where papers, photos, letters, uniforms, and other memorabilia are stored. The Center For Nursing is very proud of the many military nursing memorabilia items in the collection. Gertrude B. Hutchinson, DNS, RN, MA, MSIS, CCRN-R was the archivist who maintained these records, created exhibits, and assisted researchers, students, or other interested parties who wished to use the archives.
