I am the only grandchild who went into nursing, so I was given Granny's nursing pin after she died (September 26, 2005). Yesterday I posted a photograph of her from her nursing days. Today, I'm posting her nursing pin from the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast from 1942. Inscribed on the back is "M.J. Blair" (for Margaret Jane Blair).
64 years later, I received my nursing pin when I graduated from Sewickley Valley Hospital School of Nursing.
