||The Victorian State Committee (later Victorian Chapter) of the Royal College of Nursing Australia was established in 1949. Its objective was to act as a support group for the RCNA Federal Committee in its work to establish post-graduate education for nurses. The Vic. State Committee role was to raise funds and promote short term educational courses in nursing. The State Committee was represented on the Florence Nightingale Committee, Vic. Branch, the Royal Victorian College of Nursing and the College of Nursing Australia and Hospitals and Charities Commission. Its sub-committees raised funds for travelling scholarships, attendance at conferences and its own study days, seminars and conferences.
