Museum exhibit honors nurses

The exhibit “Nurses at Your Service: A Century of Caring” opened last week at the Kitsap County Historical Society Museum.

Nursing was one of the first professions open to women. This exhibit tells the story of how economics, war, epidemics and education shaped the profession in Washington State over the last 100 years.  Developed by the Washington State Historical Society/Traveling Exhibit Service, the panels and images will be complemented by artifacts from the museum’s collections. The exhibit will run through September.

The mission of the Kitsap County Historical Society is to collect, preserve and exhibit the diverse culture, heritage and history of Kitsap County for the education and enjoyment of the public.

The Kitsap History Museum is located at 280 Fourth St. in downtown Bremerton. Call 360-479-6226 or go to to find out more.
