Wellington Hospital was the first in New Zealand to establish a training school for nurses.  In compiling these pages I have drawn on material contained in the book 'Wellington Hospital - Educating Nurses for more than a century 1883 - 1991' by Anne L. McDonald and Cicely M. Tulloch.  Other sources include CCDHB archives located at Archives NZ and elsewhere, images and other material held at the Alexander Turnbull Library, Kai Tiaki (courtesy NZNO), Papers Past, and images from the Wellington Hospital photographic archive.  I am particularly grateful for assistance from Amanda Otzen, Research Librarian at NZNO.
