Ann Mabe Newman and Dona Haney co-authored “Miss Bonnie’s Nurses: The First Fifty Years of Nursing at UNC Charlotte,” and they will discuss the work at 10 a.m., Thursday, Nov. 8, in the Atkins Library, Halton Reading Room.
The UNC Charlotte School of Nursing was founded in 1965 under the direction of President Bonnie Cone at Charlotte College. “Miss Bonnie’s Nurses: The First Fifty Years of Nursing at UNC Charlotte” traces the history of the school to its position today as the premier choice for providing the highest quality of nursing education with a commitment to community engagement in the Charlotte region and beyond.
Newman and Haney, UNC Charlotte alumnae who both have close ties to the program’s earliest years, add their personal perspectives in this account of the people who shaped the institution and its history.
“Miss Bonnie’s Nurses: The First Fifty Years of Nursing at UNC Charlotte” is the first print book to be published by the J. Murrey Atkins Library; it is distributed by UNC Press.
