About the U.S. Cadet Nurse Corps
The U.S. Cadet Nurse Corps was administered by the U.S. Public Health Service during World War II. It began operation in 1943 and ended in 1948. Some 180,000 young women participated in this federally funded program, and 124,000 became nurses. These student nurses provided up to 80% of nursing care in a hospital. Their service prevented the collapse of the healthcare delivery system, when many graduate nurses were leaving to serve in the war. For more information about Cadet Nurses and this important program, visit the uscadetnurse.org website.

My friend was a Cadet Nurse but is 91 and can’t walk far. Where can she park close to the event?

The Memorial is located close to Lot 7a near the driving range. There is also an accessible drop-off point for passengers, if close parking is not available. See the map above for details.
