Dates of existence


The Regina General Hospital School of Nursing Alumnae Association was organised on 27 April 1921 through the efforts of Mary Jeannette Fraser, then Superintendent of the Training School for Nurses, and with a membership of twenty. The aim of the association was "the promotion of loyalty, co-operation and good fellowship among its members whose interests it sought to serve both in the Training School and in their professional work." The Alumnae Association raised money through annual fund-raising events, such as teas, bake sales, bazaars, and raffles. The proceeds were used for donations to the Hospital, Nurses' Residence, and many charitable organisations. The Association presented the Florence Nightingale Award for Devotion to Duty to a member of the School of Nursing graduating class, and sponsored an annual formal dance for the graduating class held at the Hotel Saskatchewan. It made a scholarship available to active members of the alumnae for post-graduate study in any University School of Nursing. The Alumnae Association published a directory of graduates in 1950, 1960, and 1989. In 1959, the Association adopted a young boy from Korea. The Alumnae Association was formally disbanded on 15 October 1974. However, an annual Fall Dinner and Social was continued in order to maintain unity and fellowship, and anniversaries of graduations continue to be recognised.
