Mahoney

 [mah-ho´ne]
Mary Eliza (1845–1926). America's first African American professional nurse. One of only four members of her class to complete the rigorous program at the training school of the New England Hospital for Women and Children, she was highly praised for the expert care she gave patients throughout her career. In addition, she was active in many local and national nursing organizations. In 1936, the National Association of Colored Graduate Nurses initiated the Mary Mahoney Medal, which is now awarded by the American Nurses' Association for contributions in intergroup relations.
