Alumni History Book

Celebrating Nursing Alumni 1974-2019

To mark our 50th year as a nursing school, we've released a history book that looks at the inspiring leadership, history and achievements of the Faculty of Nursing Alumni over the years.

This book would not have come together without the committed work of Janice Arbour (BN’88), Arlene Johnston (BN’79, MEd’81) and Lorraine Watson (BN’79, MEd’81, PhD’91) who searched archives, scoured their own notes (and memories) and canvassed former Alumni Committee members for their recollections. 

Enjoy this slice of history and take pride in your place within it.
