A History of the RCN
A history of the Royal College of Nursing 1916 - 90: A voice for nurses
Authors: Susan McGann, Anne Crowther & Rona Dougall

Drawing on the archives of the Royal College of Nursing, this book provides a new understanding of why and how nursing changed so radically in the twentieth century. The themes covered include the struggle to achieve professional status for nurses, gender relations within the profession and between nurses, their employers and other health professionals, the radicalisation of nurses from the 1960s, and the effect of immigration on nursing as a work force.
