Manchester Region Timeline - 1974
University of Manchester Dept of Social & Preventive Medicine

In 1974 the University of Manchester Dept of Social & Preventive Medicine was based at the Clinical Science Building, York Place, Manchester M13 0JJ. It offered 28 training places places for the Combined B.Nur/SRN/HVcert/NDNCert.

All were part of the then still mushrooming growth of the NHS following its inception in1948.  An NHS which was to cater for all.  Cradle to the grave. An NHS attempting to cover almost all known medical conditions. Not surprising then that since that beginning there had developed a plethora of nursing specialties, some sub-divided into highly specialized categories, all designed to meet particular needs. The nurses to meet those needs - General, Sick Children's, Mental, and Mental Subnormality Nurses, were all, by 1974, being trained under the auspices of the General Nursing Councils. One for England and Wales; one for Scotland; and one for Northern Ireland.

This 1974 timeline is about the University of Manchester Nursing Degree Courses.  About the students who followed them to become registered nurses holding Bachelor of Nursing degrees. About the awards they gained on the way. About their teachers, including ward staff. About the hospitals. About nursing practice. Above all it is about the reality of the practice of nurse education and training in the '70's. Perhaps you were one of them. If so why not tell us all about it on our forum. Welcome!!
