For Queen and Country, Nursing, Trauma & War - new exhibition at RCN Scotland headquarters

95eeb306-65a4-4b3e-ae73-7bdf58868391

A new exhibition which tells the story of two centuries of nursing during wartime has opened at the headquarters of the Royal College of Nursing Scotland.

Throughout history conflicts have affected the physical and mental health of service personnel and civilians. From the Crimean War in 1853, when trained nurses were first posted to a war zone, to Afghanistan in 2014, each conflict has presented a unique challenge, while the environment and the threat of disease causes even more casualties than the battlefield.

Nurses doing their duty for Queen and Country provide skilled, compassionate care to anyone at every stage of the patient experience. This exhibition tells their story.

Exhibition details

For Queen and Country, Nursing, Trauma & War runs from 1 November 2017 to 30 March 2018 at RCN Scotland Headquarters, 42 Oswald Road, Edinburgh EH9 2HH; website. Open Mon, Tue & Fri 10am to 4pm. Free entry.
