A History of Nursing Education

Explore the history of nursing education at Unity Health Toronto’s hospital sites. This collection features photographs and textual documents from the archives collections of St. Michael’s Hospital, St. Joseph’s Health Centre and Providence Healthcare. For nursing students, the journey of learning extends beyond the classroom and in time, they will transition into the role of educators themselves. While there have been significant developments in nursing education and the profession as a whole, many aspects have stayed the same. These historical records not only chronicle the professional evolution of nurses but also their unwavering commitment to delivering comprehensive and compassionate care.
