Scope and content

Indexed at front of volume. Entries usually give nurse's name, address and age; date of entry; religion; previous occupation; name and address of parent or guardian; doctor; names and addresses of two referees; note of where trained; remarks on progress, character and career; and date when left. May also include details of holidays, uniform issued, and later career. Note that pre-printed forms are not used, so information given for each nurse varies. A number of applicants come from the Norland Institute, which trains Norland nannies. After the main series of entries are four probationers' undertakings certifying their wish to serve at the Jenny Lind Hospital for two years, signed by Ethel Denman, Henrietta Philpot, Mabel Beck and Olive Egerton, 1904.
