1922–1957  During these years there was no nursing school in Nevada, and women who wanted to study nursing had to go out of state. School nurse Rae Smalley, who was raised in Caliente, Nevada studied nursing in Colorado in 1941.

1941-1944  Within this time frame, a non-professional (possibly prepared by the Red Cross) worked at Las Vegas High School to teach home nursing classes and take care of the sick and injured students.


Rae Smally, RN
