The College of Nursing Archive
The College archive is the central repository for all material pertaining to the NSW College of Nursing and its successor organisation, the College of Nursing. The collection of material began when the College was established in January 1949.
The archive was formally established in 1985 with the purpose of maintaining a historical record of both the College's work and of nursing in Australia. Since that time the collections have been expanded to include the records of some notable nurses and selected nursing organisations.
The archives are located on Level 2, 14 Railway Parade, Burwood NSW.
