Earlier this year, I was thinking it had been far too long since we'd last interviewed some nurses for the OHSU Oral History Program. Coincidentally, I was soon contacted by Joanne Noone, Ph.D., R.N., C.N.E. and Associate Dean of the Ashland program. She was interested in developing a historical project for the program, and both Karen and I were delighted to assist. Pooling resources and contacts, we've scheduled two interviews with two nursing faculty who were key in developing the program during its early days.
