Each record includes the name, date of graduation, institutional affiliation and address, to the extent it was reported by the alumna.

There is no academic information in the database and the archives does not hold student records for these nurses. There are a limited quantity of Nursery Maid class photos available in the annual reports; please contact the archives for details.
