The Oral History Program

 

The Foundation of NYS Nurses Bellevue Alumnae Center for Nursing History maintains an oral history program. This program exists to capture the life stories of nurses whose careers contribute to the rich history of nursing in New York State. Please review the list of oral history interviews available at the Veronica M. Driscoll Center for Nursing. Many of the interviews have been transcribed and transcripts are available to interested researchers. Please contact the Foundation’s archivist to gain access to these tapes or transcripts.
