I'm not sure what column to but this in but since it doesn't have to do with direct patient care etc, I'll put it here.
I'm starting to collect Nursing school pins. Does anyone know any reference book or magazine that I can use to check the names of pins and what they look like? I have emailed the American Assoc of Nursing History and they don't have anything. I know that back in the 80's RN magazine's cover every December had pin's on the cover but I can't even find a place to find those covers. I am particularly interested in the hospital school pins, especially the pins from the hospital's where the school's are now closed.
I have purchased a pin that is a small rectangle with JBH around the top with a side chain that says "49 at the end.I presume that it means they graduated in 1949 but I don't know the name or location of the school.
Any ideas would help
