It consists of documents, photographs, personal papers, books, biographical files and oral history interviews pertaining to nurses who worked in BC or who were educated in BC and also contains records of BC nursing organizations. As well, there is a collection of artefacts such as uniforms, pins and equipment used in patient care.
