Pictures of Nursing - NLM Exhibition Program

Pictures of Nursing is a beautifully curated and fascinating online exhibit from the U.S. National Library of Medicine. The homepage offers a great overview of the collection, highlighting about a dozen postcards of nurses and nursing from various historical periods and locations around the world. The Exhibition area provides an introduction to the collection of 2,588 postcards, as well as sections on Picturing Nursing as a Career, The Art of Nursing, and others. Teachers will especially want to explore the Education resources that include Lesson Plans and Online Activities. This last section features a great collection of Florence Nightingale Letters from 1845-1878 that shouldn't be missed. Additionally, the Digital Gallery's Explore feature lets students, teachers, and the general public examine 20+ postcards in close detail. Engaging questions and answers about the various elements of the postcard makes this section of the site informative as well as fun.
