Nurses Roll Call Exhibition

To mark International Nurses Day on 12 May, we invite you to step into a curated display of historical photographs, stories and memories from nurses who undertook hospital-based training at the Adelaide Children’s Hospital (as it was then known). For most nurses, this involved 3-4 years of training and living onsite in the nurses’ home. These heartfelt memoirs will be featured through an online exhibition allowing for a sentimental walk-through history. Those who view the exhibition with a shared connection to the people and events on display will have the opportunity to share their own stories and become part this very special timeline.

Presented by Women's & Children’s Hospital Foundation
