Research Facts
Valleau received 6 A's, one B and one C for her final grades; she received her notice of passing grade in December, 1928; having passed the exam, nurses were required to pay a $5 fee to complete their registration.
The first official graduating class of the Kingston General Hospital School of Nursing was in 1888; the school was created in order to educate nurses as the demand for them increased, as well as providing a labour force to the hospital. When the first nurses graduated, they were given a certificate of completion, twenty five dollars, and a nursing medal. Over the years, nurses were sometimes given pins and/or rings or other memorabilia to commemorate their graduation from the school.
