Cadet Nurse Carrie

Today, March 7, 2021, would be my mom’s 95th birthday.  She died 20 years ago but I treasure my memories of her and the stories she shared.  This blog post recounts her path to becoming a registered nurse. 

She graduated from Millers Creek High School in Wilkes County, N.C., in April 1943.[1]  Her high school transcript says[2] “Excellent character, dependable, industrious, high morals and good home environment.”
