Acceptance to Sacred Heart Nursing School from Eddie’s Collection of Junk…

Just a couple of weeks later Eddie received another short letter in the mail from Sacred Heart Hospital dated Jan. 22, 1925 telling her that she was accepted into the Nursing program.

So on July 6, 1925 Edna Lorraine McDonald entered into the school of the Sacred Heart Nurses program in Spokane, Washington.

Something tells me that this document below came with the acceptance letter.  The document seems to be the rules for entrance into the program.  She would be on six weeks probation when she entered the school.  She must be of average height and in good healthy condition and dentistry should be done before entering the school. It goes on to tell about the supplies they need to bring.

In Eddie’s day the student nurses had to stay in dorms has a condition of attending the school.

Here is our pupil, Edna or Eddie, ready for class. Actually they probably called her “Mac,” a family nickname used for my father Keith, her brother, and my mother Marjorie, Eddie’s sister-in-law.

    What a hoot to read. I wonder if Sacred Heart Hospital has copies of these forms for their archives!

      Hello Byrna: I actually went there to the Sacred Heart Hospital when we visited your mom in Spokane and showed them to the person who I talked at the hospital but I don’t remember now what happened. I might have given her copies, I am like that. I sort of feel like I am a repository for the early history of Cheney High School and Sacred Heart Nursing school. HA! There is more to come about her time there.
