Proud to nurse

The New Zealand Nurses Organisation has released a book to mark 100 years of their organisation. Freed to Care, Proud to Nurse was written by Mary Ellen O’Connor and the story of the nurses’ union includes cut-and-thrust politics, strategic manoeuvering, and gender and pay equitey concerns.

A doctor once remarked that everyone expects a nurse to look like a girl, think like a man and work like a dog. This centennial history recounts the story of NZNO’s struggle to turn those perceptions around and establish the integrity of the profession. Copies are available for $60, to order email publications@nzno.org.nz
