Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine the use of ancillary personnel to augment nursing staff, a recurring theme in the history of nursing. The focus was the use of untrained nursing personnel in Great Britain during the years 1914-1918. The findings demonstrate both the nature and extent of dilution within nursing and its effects in terms of social relationships and occupational structure.
