    I have my mother's first nursing license (1926), her school pin, her Red Cross pin (from WWII when she taught home nursing) and a metal case with a glass syringe and 2 needles. No file to sharpen the needles, though! Sadly, the moths ate her cape, so I had to get rid of it.

    My mom was a nurse for over 50 years. I have her last stethoscope and lab coat. I also have a picture of her at nursing school graduation. She was in the nurse cadets and was paid a stipend of $5 a month while in nursing school. I wish I had her cape or nursing cap. I remember her putting on her cap for work every day in the 60's. She definitely passed on her love of learning and her concern for her patients.

    I have my grandmother's stethoscope, several if her old nursing books, and on graduate day she gave me her nursing pendant that she received as a present when she graduated RN school. I treasure them all and still use her stethoscope.
