Between 1 Mar 1912 - 1 Jan 1929 a Nurses Registration Board of Queensland (I) was established to oversee the registration of nurses. With the need to standardize the education and training of nurses as well as their registration, the Nurses and Masseurs Registration Board was established (1 Jan 1929 - 27 Jul 1965). This Board was disbanded when the Physiotherapists Board of Queensland and the Nurses Board of Queensland were set up on 27 Jul 1965. On 23 Dec 1976 the decision was made to separate the function of registration from education and training and this was done by establishing the Board of Nursing Studies, and re-establishing the Nurses Registration Board of Queensland (II).
