Nursing at Bedford College for Women


  • Royal Holloway, University of London

Project summary

Bedford College was founded in 1849 to give women access to the same level of education as men. It offered courses in the arts and sciences, including courses for female sanitary inspectors, nurse administrators, and a course in public health. The Bedford College Nursing Papers contain material relating to these courses including correspondence, course syllabuses, prospectuses, committee minutes, reports of former students and details of wartime arrangements. This project was to catalogue, repackage and make the collection available online.
