Nursing After Hours

Nursing After Hours

When they’re not caring for patients, taking classes, or doing research, School of Nursing students—past and present—have never needed to range far to enjoy their leisure time…

It’s no secret that sharing food brings people together. In 1916, nursing students enjoyed a picnic at Fort McHenry, where Francis Scott Key was inspired to write “The Star Spangled Banner.” More than 90 years later, Caroline Bell ’08, Morgan Walker ’08, and Alicia Luna ’08 sip coffee together on Fleet Street in historic Fell’s Point.


In 1938, students canoed on the Severn River. The outing was part of their visit to Sherwood Forest, near Annapolis, where a cottage had been donated for nursing students’ exclusive use. Today’s students have their fun in the sun closer to home. These returned Peace Corps volunteers gather for a party at the Baltimore home of Alison Anderson, Accel ’08.


Built in 1892, the Pagoda in Patterson Park is an observation tower that provides a view of Baltimore’s harbor, downtown, and suburbs. This photo from 1954 shows Hopkins nurses posed outside the pagoda. In 2007, students Ashley Wiggins ’09 and Bernice Cheng ’09 explore the pagoda’s interior.


As players or fans, nursing students love sports! These bicyclists are Hopkins nursing students from 1940. And in 2006, nursing students cheer on Baltimore’s beloved baseball team, the Orioles.
