1904 - 1928

It is unclear just where student nurses received their lectures prior to 1904. With the opening of the Nurses’ Home in October 1904, they had for the first time a purpose-built lecture room at the southern end of the first floor of the Home, measuring 40ft x 25ft and equipped with desks and chairs.

Pictured here in the lecture room is Katherine (Kay) Mackersey who was a student nurse from 1922-1925.
