Christina Bates, curator emeritus in history at the Canadian Museum of Civilization, has written a new book, A Cultural History of the Nurse’s Uniform.
This first and only in-depth analysis of the attire worn by the largest workforce in the health care system explores the role of the nurse’s uniform in creating nursing identity for over a hundred years.
Watch for a review of book in a future BCHNS Newsletter!
