From February to June, 2007, there was an exhibit at the O'Neill Library celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Connell School of Nursing at Boston College. Although the exhibit no longer exists physically in the library, you can see this tribute online, including clips of a video interview with the former dean, Barbara Hazard.
If you are interested in the bigger picture of the history of nursing, the American Association for the History of Nursing has an excellent website with more information and links to other resources.

This is an exciting time for the field of informatics, especially bioinformatics and medical or health informatics. The website of the American Nursing Informatics Association is a great place to start if you are interested in learning more about the role of informatics in nursing and finding educational, networking and job opportunities.
