    This collection contains Cadet Nurse Corps membership cards providing details on women who joined the Corps. After the United States entered World War II, the military's needs quickly brought on a nursing shortage. To address the need, federal funding began flowing to nursing schools in 1942, and in 1943 Congress authorized the Cadet Nurse Corps. The Corps offered scholarships for tuition and fees, stipends, and uniforms to women ages 17-35 who went to nursing school and committed to serve.
