Summary The Act of Nursing: a history of nursing regulation in Victoria documents an important part of the story of nursing and midwifery in Victoria. The role of registration, training accreditation and monitoring of nurses and midwives has been fulfilled by three bodies in Victoria: the Nurses Board (1923-1957), the Victorian Nursing Council (1957-1994) and the Nurses Board of Victoria (1994-2010). Charting major developments in nursing and midwifery over more than eighty years, the history covers the emergence of nursing as a profession, the transition of nursing and midwifery education to the tertiary sector and the shift to a national scheme of health regulation
