Welcome to the South African Nursing History Forum.  The aim of the forum is to provide a platform for everyone interested in the history of nursing in South Africa where we can share ideas, articles, pictures, or any other content related to the subject.   

Although mainly aimed at nurses and nursing students, the forum is open to anyone that has an interest in South African nursing history.  We would like to encourage you to share your thoughts with us and to participate in making this a repository for historical content related to nursing history in South Africa.

Membership to the forum is not compulsory.  We do however require people to register on the forum page in order to add content such as pictures, comments, etc that will be displayed on the website.  Please note that the forum is moderated.  This is done for mutual protection, so any inputs will first be vetted prior to being published.  Any information gathered during the registration process will be treated in the strictest confidence and will not be shared with anyone.

We would like to hear your comments or suggestions regarding the website.  Please use the Contact Us page to send us your messages.

We encourage all our members to post us any relevant material, be it articles or images.  Note that when posting any media, we do appreciate references indicating the source and if possible the date of the material.  By posting material to the forum, the poster gives the SANHF permission to publish the material unless otherwise specified. We have a small repository of images which we like to share in our Gallery page.  Images will be rotated/refreshed on a regular basis.
