Summary:
Traces the role of Australian nurses from pre-industrial times to the modern day. The film probes why nursing evolved primarily as a women's profession and examines the psychological and sociological influences that have held the profession in check and fed the age old disregard for the work of the nurse. The film gives a global picture of nursing, using Australia as a case study but with comparative input from American and British counterparts.
