Retired nurse re-visits Erlanger for the first time in 70 years

Seven decades after graduating from the Baroness Erlanger School of Nursing, 90-year-old Agnes Farrar returned to the place where it all began Tuesday morning.

Farrar left Erlanger in 1944 after three years of nursing school. She spent the next 70 years in Jefferson City, Tenn. and never returned to the Chattanooga hospital until May 6, 2014 as part of "National Nurse's Week."

Farrar showed off her black-and-white memories of Erlanger's nursing school. She kept copies of her grades, letters to home, her first scissors, even the one (and only) letter of reprimand for leaving her dorm lights turned on one evening.
