Abstract

This article recollects the development of the official uniforms of graduate nurses in Croatia from the early 1920s to the 1940s. These were the early days of a profession that has gained its authority not only in health care, but also in social work, especially when it comes to health education and social support. This new profession called for a clear visual identity that would appropriately represent its status and the competence of the women who wore the uniforms. The article follows the line of continuity in the design and symbols of nurse clothing over the early days of the profession.
