Mrs Bedford-Fenwick acquired the Nursing Record in 1893 and became its Editor in 1903. It was renamed The British Journal of Nursing and through its pages for the next 54 years her thinking and her beliefs are clearly revealed. She believed that there was a need for training to a recognised standard and was instrumental in forming The British Nurses Association now the Royal British Nurses Association as a means of furthering this endeavour.
This was followed in 1926 by the foundation of The British College of Nurses. This establishment would enable Ethel to fulfil her desire for further education through Fellowships and Diplomas of Nursing and promote a high standard of nursing care and professional status of nurses. Ethel Bedford-Fenwick worked tirelessly to promote higher standards of professionalism and status within nursing until her death in 1947 at the age of 90. It is most appropriate that she appears as "Nurse No. 1" in the RBNA List of Names.
