Welcome

  

Welcome to the Winnipeg General Hospital (WGH) / Health Sciences Centre (HSC) Nursing Alumni website. Whether you are a graduate or a family member of a graduate, or an interested browser, we are proud to share our history and the work of the Alumni with you.
Our Alumni was established in 1904 to actively promote friendship and collegiality among members, to support members in their educational goals, and to preserve the rich history of nursing, and the WGH and HSC.  Over the past 116 years, a dedicated team of Alumni members have worked tirelessly to achieve these goals. Despite the closure of the School of Nursing in 1997 and a subsequent decline in Alumni membership, the Executive remains committed to the Alumni goals and the interests of our members. If you are interested in becoming involved with your nursing alumni, please contact an Executive member and we will find a place for you!
Early Alumni communication was through publication and mailing of the Alumni Journal. What an undertaking that must have been!  In 2012, the Journal was replaced by a Newsletter mailed to all members annually. During that same year, the Alumni website was also born. We owe such gratitude to Karen Rodgers (‘90) and the website team for their hard work and determination that lead to the development and ongoing support of this website. Continued gratitude goes to Karen Rodgers for her ongoing efforts to maintain this important tool for our Alumni members.
As we move into 2020, Karen and her team are working at updating our website – to meet the communication needs of our graduates. We value your feedback and suggestions to make this website inviting, informative and useful for all. We have had very positive feedback related to the increased use of photos of homecoming celebrations and as a result you will see more photos being shared on our site.  We would love to hear from you! So please take the time to send us your thoughts, concerns and suggestions for this website in particular – and your Alumni in general.
Bev Laurila (’77)
Alumni  President.
