Research Facts
"Not surprisingly, every nursing school claims a distinctive cap or headdress, and their graduates bear them across country and overseas." Each hospital or school designed its own nursing uniform in order to convey a certain image. They were both functional and symbolic. A black band on a nurse's cap indicated that she was a trained graduate nurse, whereas no band, or sometimes other colours, indicated different levels of training, working up to the final black band.
