Historical information

This photo shows a group of student nurses who are practicing bandaging in the sunshine near their practical classroom in 1933. Two tutor sisters are teaching them. They are wearing veils and their uniforms have become slightly shorter in length during the 1930's.


It was very important for nurses to practice bandaging during their nurse training , as the application of a comfortable and supportive bandage to a patient was indicative of skilled, high grade training.
