SINES, SINES, everywhere SINES

We recently received another accrual to the School of Nursing Records (partial collection guide available online), all voluntarily deposited to the archives by the impressively proactive and historically-minded administrators there.

These eleven boxes include an enormous amount of information about the school and its programs, containing as they do all the materials collected for the National League for Nursing accreditation process. A major force behind program development within the school during the 1990s was the Statewide Integrated Nursing Education System, or SINES, that brought together the various campuses of the OHSU School of Nursing--at Eastern Oregon State University, Southern Oregon State University and the Oregon Institute of Technology--into a coordinated education service for students across the state. You can hear a little bit more about the SINES program in the oral history interview with Mary B. McFarland, Ed.D. (index here).

Also included in this accrual is a whole storage carton of VHS videocassettes, some promotional videos and others collections of clips of media coverage. Complete information on current holdings of SON records can be obtained by contacting us directly at homref[at]ohsu.edu
