Nursing

UVA

After the Second World War, many U. S. hospitals were dangerously short on nurses.  The University of Virginia’s medical center came up with a novel solution – training  girls who had few other options. 

Now, more than 60 years later, UVA is apologizing and saying thanks to those unsung nurses.

If you’ve stayed at a hospital in Virginia, you may have noticed  some of the nurses were from the Philippines.  Thousands have come to this country over the years and a Virginia man has set out to explain why.
