Materials Poly/cotton
Item Dates 1980s
Significance Representativeness
Significance note Historic: for Nt Nursing Representativeness: for Nursing uniforms. Enrolled Nurse Uniform CDU Nursing Museum [Catalogue Number T44/Textile Box 7] This uniform for the Enrolled Nurse [Division 2 Registered Nurse]. It is shown here on a model from Dressmaking/Fashion given to the Museum when this discipline ceased at the University. This uniform was worn from the early 1980s into the early years of 2000 at Royal Darwin Hospital. The photograph left is from the catalogue. The uniform is an original and shows signs of some years of wear. The material is finely striped green and white and is synthetic or a mix of synthetic and cotton. Given the increasing trend into synthetic uniforms, it is perhaps as well that since the move of the hospital from Myilly Point in 1980, the whole hospital at Casuarina is now air-conditioned.
