Research Facts
This is an Alumna reunion of the Hamilton General Hospital Training School Class of 1946. Verna Mae Sproule (1 May 1922 – 2003), the mother of the artifact donor, was a member of the graduating class; Sproule also briefly worked at Kingston General Hospital as a scrub nurse for Dr. Bingham. The donor indicates that this was likely the 50 year reunion.
The Hamilton General Hospital training school for nurses was an apprenticeship style program that began in 1890; the program was initially two years, but was expanded to a three-year program led by the head nurse and physicians; it involved formal instruction and on the job training; the Hamilton General Hospital School of Nursing discontinued in 1973 when Mohawk College took over the program.
