HIS 5579 Project, 2010

Appalachian State University

In the fall of 2010, students from Dr. Lucinda McCray’s Oral History class  at Appalchian State University in Boone, NC each interviewed two or three nurses in North Carolina. Each student’s interviews centered on some common theme in nurses’ identities or professional specialties. For instance, different student projects focused on psychiatric nurses, Native American nurses, and male nurses. Students used this experience to practice the methods of oral history and to learn about the nursing history of North Carolina.
