Admin HistoryThe Nottingham School of Nursing has its origins in the Nursing Studies Unit which opened at Nottingham in the 1970s. In 1989 a Department of Nursing was established at the University as part of the Medical School, allowing students to study nursing as a degree subject. The first twenty students for the new degree entered the department in October 1990. With the creation of the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, Nursing became a separate school. As of 2014 the Division of Nursing sits in the School of Health Sciences in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences.

As well as Nottingham, there were nursing training centres at Mansfield, Grantham, Lincoln, Boston and Derby. They were previously part of the Health Authority (Central Nottinghamshire) but were taken over by the University in 1995.
Custodial HistoryThe records were retained by the University of Nottingham Medical School until being transferred to Manuscripts and Special Collections in October 2012.
DescriptionThe collection contains a small amount of material relating to the teaching of nursing at the University of Nottingham during the time that Nursing came under the remit of the Medical School.

The archive includes records of the governance of the undergraduate degree course in Nursing, from the beginning of the course in 1990 until 1996 and ephemeral printed material including newspaper clippings, photographs and programmes for events.

A much larger amount of material has been transferred from the nursing training centres at Mansfield, Grantham, Lincoln, and Boston, which have all now closed.

A small number of items have been found from hospitals which predate these training centre, which relate to the training of nurses at Nottingham General Hospital, Nottingham City Hospital and Nottingham Children's Hospital.
