Virginian. Veteran. Nurse.
UVA Nursing graduate Dorothy Sandridge Gloor (Diplo `42) – raised on a farm in rural Albemarle County – was working at UVA Hospital when Pearl Harbor was bombed on Dec. 7, 1941, and knew immediately that the world had changed. By summer of 1942, the need for nurses was great and Sandridge enlisted as 1st lieutenant, heading first to Fort Benning, Ga., before traveling overseas to Italy, Algeria and French Morocco where she became a skilled nurse anesthetist with the 8th Evacuation Hospital, thanks to training and guidance from her surgical and nursing colleagues.
Here, in Algeria, Gloor strikes a pose with her new camera near an Army telephone, high-tech gadgets of their time.
After the war ended and she returned back to the US, Sandridge – now quite skilled in anesthesiology – was tapped to assist UVA doctors performing lobectomies and open chest surgeries for tuberculosis patients at the now-abandoned Blue Ridge Sanatorium before moving to Ohio for further schooling, and to marry.

Why did Cynthia Shively, an experienced family nurse practitioner, return to University of Virginia to study #psychiatric nursing?
Because of the inextricable link between mental and physical health.
"You can't just fix everything at the end, once it's broken," says Shively, who will earn a mental health nursing post-master's certificate in 2019. "You have to start way, way upstream, and tend people along the way."
