Nurse Romance Cover of the Week

Surf Safari Nurse Surf Safari Nurse (1966, by Jane Converse. From the archives of Nurse Romance Cover of the Week at UWM Libraries’ Special Collections. "...Nurse Romance Cover of the Week presents images and snippets of text from the more than 425 novels held in the UWM Libraries' Special Collections that have nurses as central characters. These images, from works written for both young and adult audiences from the 1950s to the 1970s, often reflect stereotypes about nurses, usually negative, that are held in the popular imagination. These works raise issues concerning the image of nurses and the nursing profession in popular culture, and the books that serve to reinforce not only popular misconceptions of nurses, but of women generally, and professional women in particular."
