Beginning as a small entity in 1916, the College of Nursing has evolved into a successful trade union, recognised by the government and the public as the \'voice of nursing\'.\" \"During the first half of the twentieth century the College was an elite professional association providing educational courses and professional advice, but as the social revolution of the sixties swept through Britain, no occupation was more affected than nursing. The traditional image of nurses as \'angels\' was questioned by the younger members of the profession and the old ways, which reflected the Victorian legacy of Florence Nightingale, had to change. Transforming itself into the \'RCN\' and combining the roles of professional association and trade union, the College membership began to reflect the modern image of nursing, which was becoming increasingly diverse and inclusive. By the 1980s, in contrast to all other professional unions, its membership was growing dramatically and by the end of the twentieth century the RCN had become one of the most successful professional unions in the country.\" \"Drawing on the archives of the Royal College of Nursing, this book provides a new understanding of why and how nursing changed so radically in the twentieth century. The themes covered include the struggle to achieve professional status for nurses, gender relations within the profession and between nurses, their employers and other health professionals, the radicatisation of nurses from the 1960s, and the effect of immigration on nursing as a work force.\"--Jacket.<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.<\/div>
