Need help locating info on Army Nurse

I am assuming this set of dog tags are from an Army Nurse. I am hoping someone will be able to help me find out something about her. The tags came from Oklahoma City with a Red Cross WWII Nursing Service Student Reserve ribbon and there were 2nd Lt and 1st Lt bars in the grouping.

The tags read as follows:

 

THOMPSON, EDNA C.

N-774447 T45 B

P

Edna C. Thompson does not show up on the 1944, 1945, 1946 Army Nurse Corps lists.

Since this tag is the 1944 format and has the T45 (tetanus shot in 1945) would it be safe to assume enlistment late 1944 or some time in 1945?

I don't know if you still have these dog tags and are still interested but I found something on the newspapers.com website. I don't have a subscription to read the entire article but this information showed up when I did a google search on "edna c thompson" WWII nurse

 

"Lt. Edna C. Thompson was (discharged from the 'Army i (Nurse corps April 6, .... Bronze Battle Star, one overseas service bar and World war II Victory Medal."

 

Looks like she served overseas which is very cool! I also read where the ANC pulled nurses from the Red Cross which is why she would have the Red Cross student ribbon.
