Visit the Crawford Long Museum for a dose of the good stuff! A temporary exhibit "From Capes to Scrubs-The Evolution of Nursing" documents the history of nursing, uniforms and nurse education through a collection of photographs, books, memorabilia and equipment. The exhibition offers a glimpse into the uniforms nurses have worn throughout history and rules nurses were expected to follow in the early days. The exhibit is on display until August, 2018.
