Pioneering Women for a Pioneering Act

RCN Fellows Lecture

05 Nov 2019 17:30 - 19:30

20 Cavendish Square, Marylebone, London, W1G ORN

FREE

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.

Hear about characters 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.
