The National Policy 1878-1896
Victorian order of nurses:
The Victorian order of nurses was formed by Lady Aberdeen in 1897. The purpose of the Victorian order of nurses was to provide the services of visiting nurses to rustic areas without hospitals and medical facilities.
The majority of women in paid employment worked in domestic service, other working women worked in factories and mills. In the past, working in a factory was a better job than being a servant in someone’s house, because women got more independent freedom if they worked in a factory, rather than being demanded to do something every day.
