Volunteering at the Center for Nursing

Our volunteers are an integral part of the work accomplished at the Center for Nursing. The selfless contributions of their time and talents are important and deeply appreciated, and help to enable the Center to continue to move forward with its mission and vision: preserving and honoring the history of nursing, increasing the understanding of what nurses do and why they are integral to health care, and to advance the profession so nurses can continue to care for patients with compassion, competence, and expertise.

Here are some of the items that the Center’s volunteers have assisted with:

  • Processing of collections for the CNH. Collections such as the Teachers College Nursing Education Alumni Association (TCNEAA); the National Student Nurses Association (NSNA); and the New York Counties Professional Nurses Association (NYCPNA, which is the former District 13).
  • Assist with our ongoing oral history projects, as both interviewers and transcribers; and
  • Assist with setting up displays, both here at the Center and in the community.
