Abstract:

My impression of 1985 was a year of assertiveness by nurses in New Zealand.  Returning from sabbatical leave in Fegruary I had missed the furore and protests associated with the Division of Nursing and the Director’s position – events which possible set the mood for the following year.  What I did experience was the prolonged debate and energy build-up which culminated in the December settlement.
