Abolition of Rank of Staff Nurse

Abolition of Rank of Staff Nurse

The Matron-in-Chief 2 NZEF, in her report on the NZANS for June 1941, mentioned that a Royal Warrant had abolished the rank of staff nurse. This, it was thought, would bring about greater contentment in the nursing service and would greatly simplify the choice of suitable ward sisters by enabling them to be drawn from a larger pool. Some sisters were excellent nurses but not good administrators in large wards.
