Mission Statement

The University of Maryland School of Nursing Living History Museum preserves the history and heritage of the School of Nursing, honors the critical role of nurses in health care, and chronicles the ongoing evolution of nursing education, research and practice.

Description

One of the only museums of its kind in the nation, the University of Maryland School of Nursing's Living History Museum is designed as a unique learning environment for the presentation and interpretation of the School of Nursing's history, from its founding in 1889 until the present. The latest museum techniques and materials are employed to make the exhibition attractive, engaging and accurate in its portrayal and documentation of people and events.

Through hundreds of original nursing artifacts, historical photographs, letters and documents, as well as audio and video presentations, the Museum traces the evolution of the School's mission in nursing education, research and practice from its early years as a hospital training program to its emergence as a premier professional school.

The Museum also promotes the School and the nursing profession to nursing students and the general public, including school-age children. It is one of the few places in the nation where young people can learn about nursing's rich heritage and witness the pride of its practitioners.
