Research Facts
The Toronto General Hospital Training School for Nurses (also School for Nurses or School of Nursing) was established in April 1881 and closed in August 1974. In the first year, the School had 17 students, eight of whom dropped out in the first seven months. The first graduating class (March 1883) had five students. In 1956 the education program changed from three years of instruction to two years, plus a one-year internship for professional experience. It was closed in 1974 because nursing education moved in Ontario to the community college system.
