The year 2020 has been chosen by the World Health Organisation as the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife.

This was in honour of the 200 year anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth - a pioneer in nursing.

Nurses and Midwives are key to patient-centred care and quality health outcomes for all our patients at Albury Wodonga Health, and are central to the history of Albury and Wodonga Hospitals and community-based care in our region.

Nurses Graduation Day

Nurse on Call is a collaboration between Albury Wodonga Health and Albury LibraryMuseum to celebrate the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife. One hundred years of nursing in the Albury Wodonga region is explored through images, primary sources, newspaper articles, official hospital documents, and oral histories. We cannot tell every story, but we hope to provide a glimpse into the nurses of the past, while also celebrating the nurses of the present.
