Formal training of Retreat nurses began in 1894. Nurse probationers [student nurses] received training through practical experience and lectures, took examinations and were awarded Retreat certificates (the Tuke Certificate). Outstanding nurses might be awarded the William Tuke Medal (see RET 1/8/5/15). Training was extended in 1902, from three years into a four year course.
