Research Facts
Nurses wore special uniforms for their graduation, similar to the regular uniforms but with no turkey-red band along bottom of skirt; graduation ceremonies were held in Grant Hall from 1920-1974; beginning in 1921, all graduating nurses received a bouquet of red roses from the Board of Governors; this was upon the recommendation of the Kingston General Hospital Nursing Alumni.
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.
