Description

District Nursing in South Australia

Nora Jacob worked as a district nurse for the Royal District Nursing Society from 1934 until 1953. She trained at Mareeba Babies' Hospital and the Adelaide Hospital in the 1920s, and then did private nursing through the Adelaide Nurses' Call Depot before enquiring about district nursing. Over the next ten years Miss Jacob worked quite frequently as a relieving sister for the Society and describes her time at remote Farina in some detail. In 1945 she was appointed full-time to the Milang Branch and she describes the working conditions. The interview then returns to a discussion of Miss Jacob's earlier relief appointments at Yankalilla, Poochera and Iron Knob.

Recorded on 7 June 1983 & 5 August 1984
