UBC Of­fers the First Nurs­ing De­gree Pro­gram in the Bri­tish Em­pire

Trek Magazine - - Message From The President -

In 1919 UBC took a great leap by be­ing the first school in all of Canada to of­fer a nurs­ing bac­calau­re­ate de­gree. The in­duc­tion of the pro­gram at this time was not only im­por­tant to the field of nurs­ing, but also al­lowed for great ad­vances in the women’s rights move­ment, as well as com­bat­ting the in­fluenza epi­demic of the time.
