A Visual History of Nurse Uniforms


This site is dedicated to those hardworking and underpaid Angels of Mercy who, over the years, have made a stay in hospital that much more bearable. It’s a growing collection of images of Nurses taken from Film, TV and The Media from the 1930s to the present, showing how uniform styles have changed over the years. [Metafilter]

    What uniform did nurses wear during the Franco-Prussian War or Crimean War if any uniform…did they wear just regular dresses in lieu of uniforms?
