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.

Kingston General Hosptial School of Nursing graduation list

Research Facts
Kingston General Hospital School of Nursing existed from 1886-1974 and was a hospital-based training school. Anne graduated with a class of ten students in 1909 and Josie graduated in 1910 with eleven students. 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.
Kingston General Hospital had the symbol of the red cross displayed on the sleeves of nursing uniforms, seen as the “international symbol of mercy,” which later became the symbol of the International Red Cross Association. As such, the hospital began embroidering its initials “KGH” onto the cross to distinguish themselves from the Red Cross.
