Research Facts
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.

Research Facts
Planning for a School of Nursing at Queen's University began in 1941, and the first director, Ms. Riches, was appointed in 1946. The first two candidates were awarded the Bachelor of Nursing Science in May 1947, and in 1948, 10 students graduated. The School of Nursing was first housed in Kingston Hall and moved to Summerhill in 1960 where it remained until 1982, when it moved to the Cataraqui Building.

When the first nurses graduated, they were given a certificate of completion, twenty five dollars, and a nursing medal.
Chalmers United Church in Kingston first met in 1847, and moved to its current location at Barrie Street, Clergy Street and Earl Street in the 1890s. At that time it was the Chalmers Free Presbyterian Church, and became part of the new United church (made from the union of the Congregational Church, Methodist Church and Presbyterian Church) in 1925.
