King's College Hospital Nursing Committee

Administrative / Biographical history

King's College Hospital Nursing Committee was formed in 1885 when the Sisterhood of St John the Evangelist's nursing agreement with the Hospital was terminated, and the Committee of Management formed their own nursing staff. The Nursing Committee formed an Education Sub-Committee in 1947. The Nursing Committee and its Education Sub-Committee were reconstituted and renamed in 1968 following the Salmon Committee Report recommendations for nurse administration reform. The Nursing Committee became the Nursing Advisory Committee in 1968, reporting directly to the Finance and General Purposes Committee. The Education Sub-Committee became the Nursing Education Committee from 1969, and the Normanby College Council from 1974, reporting to the District Management Team.
