Pioneering Nurses

Welcome to Pioneering Nurses - a website based on the records of the Royal British Nurses' Association which reveals the fascinating personal lives and careers of those who were among the first nurses to sign up to a professional register in 1890.

The Royal British Nurses' Association archive at King's College London contains a wealth of information that has been used to compile summary biographies describing the nurses' backgrounds, training and achievements and provide a snapshot of life for professional women in late Victorian England.

The website is the culmination of a shared learning project undertaken by a team of dedicated members of the University of the Third Age, led by Dianna Widdis and Maggie Wain.
