Nurses Week Display - Swilley Library

The current Swilley Library display is in honor of National Nurses Week - May 6 to May 12. The display features information on some notable historic nurses, the work of nursing theorists whose books you may browse through at Swilley Library, and a nod to the nursing student's journey with a Denver Developmental Screening Test on display and some information about the pinning ceremony that welcomes new nurses into the profession.  Congratulations to the Georgia Baptist College of Nursing students who will be graduating May 13!

Display created by Erin Reardon, Valdosta State University library school student.  Ms. Reardon just completed an internship with the Swilley Librarians in the area of Health Sciences.
