Island Nurse is the story of Mary Donnelly, the nurse and heart of Block Island, RI. After more than 54 years of nursing, Mary D finally hung up her stethoscope and put away the thermometer and bandages for the last time in May 2013 when she retired from state public health service at age 86. Along the way, she raised seven children while looking after some 1,000 year-round Block Island residents.
