To the Catholic Sentinel:
As a member of the St. Vincent Alumnae Association, I thank you for the coverage of our alumnae homecoming. However, it was the 100th anniversary of the Alumnae Association, so I hoped for and expected more emphasis on that fact.
St. Vincent School of Nursing was established almost a half century before Providence Hospital School of Nursing, but the narrative didn’t appear to reflect that well. Providence’s nursing school was closed nearly 50 years ago.
