National Nurses Week, a Vintage Celebration

Nurses at St. David’s South Austin Medical Center recognized National Nurses Week by wearing vintage white nursing uniforms and caps this afternoon as they celebrate their own Nurse of the Year awards for RN and LVN. Veterans of the staff Judy Socha, center left, and Sheila Brown, center right, high-five each other after finding out they graduated from nusring school on the same day and same year in 1974, but from different schools. The two have been nurses for 36 years. “This is my gift. This is what God intended for me.” said Socha, who added, “When you see the black stripe on the hat you knew it was a nurse.”
