Great Days in New Zealand Nursing has been written in the hope that this story of discipline, courage, loyalty, and high sense of duty will enlighten and inspire many women to adopt nursing as a career.

This book also records many interesting stories of New Zealand nurses, at home and abroad. These include accounts of nurses serving in both World Wars and mentions of hospitals throughout NZ.

(I have included in the pictures a shot of the Index which will give you an idea of the vast range of topics/people covered in this book).

From the Foreward by Mary I. Lambie, CBE

"Many years ago Miss Rattray called to tell me that she was writing a nursing history to consist of stories concerning the first NZ nurses to take part in various phases of nursing service, and to ask for assistance in checking facts. Years of research have revealed a most interesting and, at times, dramatic story of individual nurses and their service in other lands - service which was often carried out under most hazardous and difficult conditions."

"A great deal of material which is recorded nowhere else is the result of Miss Rattray's personal research among old Press files, while in numerous instances the individual nurse's story has been supplied by members of her family. For this reason the collating of this material, much of which would otherwise have been lost, will be valuable history for future reference."
