Nursing “is essentially women’s work” wrote a journalist in the Yorkshire Observer in 1919, just before the introduction of registration, “It is truly a labour of love, for their hours are long and their work demands the best that is in them, while the remuneration is comparatively low.”

This link between low pay, vocation and women’s work has dogged nursing for over a century.

Join a panel of historians, nurses and social scientists to explore why nursing remains undervalued in terms of status and pay, and how we might change this for future generations of health workers.
