While reading a vintage Women’s Own magazine dated November 1950 I came across an advert for nurses.
It first tried to create a bit of atmosphere by telling a story.
‘3.00am… from the dimness of the ward a low voice calls – Nurse! Quickly but silently she moves to the bedside – perhaps to adjust a dressing or merely give a cooling drink – perhaps to deal with a serious change in her patients condition.
Her training gives a Nurse competence to deal with any situation. Nursing is responsible work and training would give you the confidence to be a Nurse’
The advert then says…
“That’s a future in NURSING under the National Health Service – Training allowances start at £200 a year. Superannuation for all 28 days paid holiday. Conditions now negotiated through your Council. Opportunities for promotion at home and abroad”.
It’s a bit different now of course………
These vintage magazines are sooooooo fascinating to read Lots more to post !!!!!
