This thesis examines recruitment and retention in mental health nursing in England between 1948 and 1968. Its first objective is to explore the explanations hat were given for the severe shortage of mental nurses that occurred in this period. The study will look at the official views on this topic, such as those of politicians, civil servants, senior nurses, psychiatrists, union leaders and administrators. It will also discuss the views of mental nurses themselves as to why this occurred. The second objective is to analyse the strategies that were adopted in an attempt to improve both recruitment and retention in this period.
