'For Queen and Country'

Nursing, Trauma and War

01 Nov 2017 - 30 Mar

RCN Scotland Headquarters (Edinburgh), 42 South Oswald Road, Edinburgh, EH9 2HH


An exhibition telling the story of nursing during wartime - from the 19th to the 21st century. Open Mondays, Tuesdays, Fridays 10am-4pm

Throughout history conflicts have affected the physical and mental health of service personnel and civilians.

From the Crimean War in 1853, when trained nurses were first posted to a war zone, to Afghanistan in 2014, each conflict has presented a unique challenge, while the environment and the threat of disease causes even more casualties than the battlefield.

Nurses doing their duty for Queen and Country provide skilled, compassionate care to anyone at every stage of the patient experience.

This exhibition tells their story.

The exhibition is open Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays, from 10am-4pm.
