Make Nursing Your War Job

Ministry of Health Information recruitment poster. By 1943, nurses were scarce and the Ministry of Labour established a National Council for the Recruitment and Distribution of Nurses and Midwives. Local needs and types of nursing jobs were prioritised and Nursing Appointments Offices opened as placement agencies. In September 1943, the Control of Engagement Order was extended to nurses and midwives allowing the Offices to direct workers to where they were required.
