Return to Menu Symbol of a Profession: One Hundred Years of Nurses' Caps

The Canadian Nursing History Collection

The Canadian Museum of Civilization and the Canadian War Museum house an extensive collection on nursing history. The core of the collection includes over a thousand artifacts - from syringe kits to military medals - donated by the Canadian Nurses Association. This important material, along with the nurses' caps and other artifacts, will be the basis of a future exhibition at the CMC on the history of nursing in Canada.

Information on the majority of these artifacts is available in our online collections catalogue.
