In honor of Nurses Week, the LOST ART of NURSING MUSEUM will award a $1000 scholarship to some lucky nursing student.

To be eligible, you must be currently enrolled in a school of nursing or be a Spring 2018 graduate. You must visit the museum and fill out an official entry form. That form will be entered into a drawing to be held on May 31st.

Admission to the museum is always free but a reservation is required. (My husband needs enough time to vacuum and mop while I put away all of my unfinished projects.)

Or come on Saturday, May 12th, from 1-4 p.m. when the museum will be open to the public for Florence Nightingale’s birthday party. There will be cake, coloring books for kids, and pacemakers for really old nurses.

The museum is in beautiful Cannon Beach, home of Haystack Rock and Ecola State Park. We have fabulous boutiques, bakeries, breweries, and art galleries. So grab your favorite classmates, colleagues, friends, or family and take a break. Recharge your batteries, rediscover a bit of nursing history, and register to win a $1000 scholarship!

Questions? Contact Melodie Chenevert at 503-436-4013 or cell 301-208-8060 or 
(PS: I became a nurse 55 years ago.)

Lost Art of Nursing Museum and Giftshop


There was a time when nursing was celebrated in song and verse. When world famous artists were commissioned to capture nurses on canvas. When magazine covers, advertisements, poems, and sheet music immortalized nurses. When books, dolls, and toys made every little girl dream of being a nurse when she grew up. There was a time when it was bold, noble, and patriotic to be a nurse. That time has come again!


Come see by appointment all year round (just call 301-208-8060). If you see the banners are up, then we're open for special occasions! Admission is always free!

NEW!!  Now you can wear the "lost art of nursing". Melodie has miniaturized some of the pieces in the museum to create statement necklaces for nurses. Wear them to show your pride in the rich history of our profession. Makes a great gift for graduation, retirement, or Nurses Week.  Click on Products in the menu bar to the left.
