Here we will share our memories of our time at HSC. Our Alumnae News has printed many stories from graduates over the years and we’ve included a few that have been scanned from the original newsletters in the 1940’s. .
Many graduates also took the time to write reflections for our 100th Anniversary in 2003. Small snippets were used to highlight the content of the book, 100 Years: A Celebration of the Alumnae Association of the School of Nursing, The Hospital for Sick Children. Now we will have the opportunity to read these in full.
We hope that we will receive many more recollections. Please send your story along to [email protected] so that we can include it here.
