a nursing museum docent explains a photograph to current nursing students

The Museum is supported by a dedicated team of volunteer docents, who are alumni of UMSON. The docents have tremendous wisdom and experience, and their presence is a reminder of the durable link between nursing’s present and past.

The Museum is currently seeking additional volunteers to help in a variety of roles, including:

  • Docents who share the history of UMSON and the nursing profession with students and visitors
  • Collections care and management, including cataloging artifacts, conducting research, and digitizing collections

There are many opportunities, and we can create one to meet your interests. Contact Kirsten Hammerstom, curator, at or 410-706-2327 for more information.
