Preserving our History

We are committed to collecting, preserving and displaying historical materials related to the School and Alumnae and have an extensive historical collection of nursing archives and museum items.

The collection is located in the alumnae rooms, Heather Pavilion, VGH.

The main room contains the archive collection of documents, photographs, books, student annuals as well as School of Nursing course outlines and other valuable items   The museum consists of priceless pieces, such as an iron lung, and all have been catalogued and photographed.

We are especially proud of our textile room with its collection of student uniforms.  As well there are graduate pins and medals, miniature dolls and silver items, many donated by graduating classes.
