Australian nurse in 1968

This picture is from 1968. It shows a male and female nurse at the old Canberra Community Hospital. The uniform with the light headpiece is how I remember the female nurses from my stays there in the early 1970s.

    Now, nurses wear scrubs all the time. It is not flattering and it is not dignified. While the uniforms may have been a little artificial, they at least lent some dignity to the profession. I don’t know about the guy’s uniform, but the same principle applies.

    Are nurses still addressed as “Sister” where you are?
