Brandie (commonthistle) | 13 comments I read these in the early 80's, but they were old then...The series is about a girl who decides to become a Candy Striper, and throughout the series goes on to be a nurse. I'm pretty sure her name is part of the title in most of the books, too. Any help is appreciated!

Roberta (robbi_t) Could this be the Alice Series ("Patiently Alice," "Alice Alone," etc.)?

Brandie (commonthistle) | 13 comments No, I looked those up and the series I am looking for is a lot older than that (maybe printed in the 60's?). Thanks, though! I really wish I could remember more about them!

Maria Elmvang (kiwiria) | 30 comments I'm thinking either Cherry Ames by Helen Wells or Sue Barton by Helen Dore Boylston? Both have their names as part of the title for most books. I used to love both series, but especially Sue Barton, as Cherry Ames quickly got too unrealistic.

Brandie (commonthistle) | 13 comments Yes! It was Sue Barton--and wow, are they older than I thought! Thank you so very, very much!! I need to go do the happy dance now...
