Royal Victorian Trained Nurses Association Nurses Register

  • Repository Public Record Office Victoria, Victorian Archives Centre
  • Reference VPRS 16407
  • Date Range 1901 - 1930
  • Description

    The Australian Nursing Federation, Victorian Branch was first constituted in 1901 as the Victorian Trained Nurses Association (VTNA). It’s role was to register nurses, introduce a uniform curriculum of training and examination and to establish a benefit scheme for nurses. In 1904 the title was prefixed with ‘Royal’. The registers provide the record of registration numbers and associated details for registered nurses. While the role of registering nurses was the responsibility of the Nurses Board (VA 3144) from 1924, entries continue to appear in these volumes, dating to 1930. It is unclear if these entries were made by the Royal Victorian Trained Nurses Association or whether the register had been transferred to the Nurses Board when it was formed.
