History of Nursing in South Australia

Eve Ainsworth was born in Adelaide, South Australia and was adopted in infancy by the couple whose name she was given. Eve's childhood was spent at Tarcoola and Port Augusta, and later at Ashfield. In 1933 Eve began training at the Hutt Street Private Hospital, and did midwifery training in Melbourne. She was called up for duty with the Australian Army Nursing Service in 1941 and went to the Middle East later that year. On her return to Australia Eve nursed in Queensland, until her marriage in 1944.
