In relation to GNC registration fees, up until 1948 an annual retention fee was required in order to remain on the register and was then set at 2s 6d .  In 1966 the registration fee was increased to ?6.6.0, the same as the fee for the state final examination, and the first increase since 1951. I have a copy of the Bendall and Raybould, History of the GNC 1919-1969, it's a wonderful source of information.

Wow! What a lovely collection of Nursing Training Certificates posted by Peter. Thank you for sharing these documents with us. They make very interesting reading. I recall the Director of Nurse Education at The London Hospital telling us we received a Nurse Education first and then a Nurse Training! It was a topic of great discussion amongst student nurses at that time.I remember the heated discussions/debates about Education v Training! The wording on the certificates especially those issued by Hospitals illustrate the hierarchy of those who put their signature on the certificate. It would be interesting to know if todays nurse training in Higher Education Establishments make mention the word "training". The Certificates of Nurse Training along with the Badges are very important to the History of Nurse Training. I think I recall the GNC for England and Wales had a "once in a lifetime fee" of ?5.00 for registration! How times have changed!

Indeed a neglected area of collecting. Many were not as likely to survive as the badges.
I have tried to pick them up when I've seen them and they are indeed some lovely designs.As with all of it I will have to access my folio case which is in the loft when I can. Am trying to get my camera working now as the computer was out of action and the phone just does quite do them justice.Here are a few old pics.  https://www.flickr.com/search/?user_id=36611823%40N07&sort=date-taken-desc&text=certificate&view_all=1

It?s not something I collect unless they come with badges, suffice to say I have one or two certificates/GNC certificates.
