Abstract:

Using still photographs and film clips, this video traces the history of nurses in the United States Navy. The first hospital ship, "Red Rover," was outfitted during the Civil War in 1862, with four sisters from the Order of the Holy Cross serving as nurses. The Navy Nurse Corps was established by Congress in 1908. The first nurses to graduate as Navy nurses are known as the "sacred twenty." Navy nurses served in France in World War I and during the flu epidemic in 1918. Navy nurses became prisoners of war in World War II. They became flight nurses in 1945. Men were first commissioned as officers in the Nurse Corps in 1965. The first Navy nurse promoted to flag rank was Rear Admiral Alene Durek in 1972. Personal reflections are also included in this program.
