New Zealand Military Nursing
New Zealand Army Nursing Service - Royal New Zealand Nursing Corps

The first book dedicated to New Zealand military nursing was published in 1990. Entitled New Zealand Military Nursing - A History of the R.N.Z.N.C. Boer War to Present Day, it was written and published by Sherayl Kendall & David Corbett.

Since then, the book has been used continuously and extensively by researchers all over the world. The book not only gave the history of New Zealand military nursing but included the rolls of those who served from Boer War to the 1970s. It has been immensly satisfying to learn how useful researchers have found this book.

Sadly, David Corbett, co-author, passed away on 9 June 1993 leaving behind a legacy of military research information, published articles and books including the above.

I continue my research of military nursing in New Zealand to this day, and offer my findings to all of you on this website. It is my hope that this website will acquaint you with the history of military nursing in New Zealand. The site currently includes the lists of nurses who have served since the Boer up to 1990.

The book '100 Years - New Zealand Military Nursing - New Zealand Army Nursing Service - Royal New Zealand Nursing Corps - 1915 - 2015' is now available and lists over 2,500 nurses known to have served in the Royal New Zealand Nursing Corps from 1915 to March 2015 including VADs who served during World War One.
