Elizabeth Carignan Yeznach

I attended St. Francis Hospital School of Nursing in Hartford, Connecticut from September 1943 to graduation in September 1946 with two classmates with whom I had gone through grammar and high school.After graduation I worked at a Psychiatric Hospital and had a succession of positions in other nursing areas such as medical/surgical, obstetris, Private Duty and part time school nursing until my retirement in May 2009.I have been involved in seeking recognition of the Cadet Nurses for a long time, even going to Washington to give testimony to the Armed Forces Committee. The 70th anniversity of the U.S. Cadet Nurse Corps is in 2013. I hope that this will be the year for some recognition.
