Nursing Pins Featured in Falk Library Exhibit

HSLS presents a new exhibit with a numismatic twist, The Ultimate Service Pin, a History of Nursing, by Dawn McBride. The author is a Clinical Research Project Manager at the University of Pittsburgh where she is also a nurse and collector at heart. She gives viewers a glimpse of nursing history through her collection of nursing pins and coins featuring nurses and nursing related symbols.

The exhibit is on display on the main floor of Falk Library, across from the stairwell, from September 19, 2016, through January 5, 2017. It is open to the public and can be viewed during the library’s regular hours.
