Pioneering Women for a Pioneering Act: RCN Fellows Lecture

Pioneering Women for a Pioneering Act: RCN Fellows Lecture
 
  5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Dr Alison O’Donnell explores the Royal College of Nursing archive to give a history of the pioneering women involved in the passing of the Registration Act in 1919, including College secretary Mary Rundle, co-founder Sarah Swift and founding member Rachael Cox-Davies.

These women knew why the Registration Bill was pioneering for nursing as a profession: improving education, status, working conditions and moving towards fair and equal pay. However, a century later, some of these issues remain pertinent: safe staffing, education and the status of nursing as a profession.
