Diary of A World War II Cadet Nurse: LaVerne Hutchison
On July 1, 1943 the U. S. federal government passed the Bolton Act (Public Law 74) to create the Cadet Nurse Corps. Its purpose was to ensure there were sufficient numbers of nurses available to work in both civilian and military hospitals throughout the world during World War II. In exchange for a statement of availability to serve the Cadet Nurses were given full tuition and a monthly stipend. My mother was one of thousands of young women across the country who responded. She attended Saint Anthony Hospital School for Nurses in Denver, Colorado. Her diary of this time is as much a coming of age story and romance as it is of her training.
