Research Facts
Valleau wrote the exam in November of 1928; she did not specialize in a particular area of nursing; at this time she worked briefly at Kingston General Hospital, as a private duty nurse, and at the military hospital in Kingston.
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.
