Nursing Archives















The Alfred Hospital Nurses League was established in 1918 by senior nurses to ensure that nurses could establish a permanent link with their nursing school and the friends they had made there.

Our Objectives

To bring together past and present nurses who trained, worked or are currently working at the Alfred Hospital with a view to meeting at stated intervals to promote good fellowship and an exchange of ideas.

To develop and maintain the archives of nursing at the Alfred Hospital.
