Josephine L Singleton, daughter of Amy and Walter

She began her employment on March 1, 1953 as Op-

She was promoted to Staff Nurse III and eventually
became Nurse Supervisor Operating Room and Central
Supply on October 1, 1957. She not only supervised
the operating room area, but was responsible for purchas-
ing equipment and supplies for the hospital.
Her performance evaluations indicated that she was a
"conscientious, sincere and competent nurse."
Josephine was Assistant Director of Nursing from
March 28, 1965 until her retirement on December 30,
1983.
She was responsible for personnel recruitment, nurs-
ing policies and procedures, nursing practices and adminis-

She was the Executive Secretary of the first Virgin
Islands Board of Nurse Licensure which made licensure for
nurses mandatory in the United States Virgin Islands, and
allowed nurses to take licensing examinations for registra-
tion here in the Virgin Islands.
