Abstract

Knowledge of the history of remote-area nursing in Australia is necessary if we are to truly understand the processes that have dictated the boundaries and reality of the scope of practice for today’s RANs (remote-area nurses). This paper briefly explores and discusses the social context and history of remote-area nursing in Australia and, in particular, Queensland during the 19th century.
