Overview: St. Paul's Hospital School of Nursing Alumni Association

From the first five graduates on September 21, 1911 to the time when the School of Nursing closed its doors in 1969 there have been 2,057 graduates who can proudly claim St. Paul's Hospital School of Nursing Alumni Association membership.

The St. Paul's Hospital School of Nursing Alumni Association was formally organized by Mrs. Constance Wait in 1925. All graduates are eligible for membership. The Saskatoon headquarters of the Alumni Association manages the affairs of the Association and holds three general meetings, including one annual meeting each year. Groups in Victoria, Vancouver, Kelowna, Calgary, Edmonton and Ottawa also meet regularly and some have hosted reunions. An annual newsletter fosters communication and fellowship among Alumni.

Alumni have participated in various projects with St. Paul's Hospital and the School of Nursing when it existed, and at one time were a major source of volunteers for the Gift Shop that the Alumni Association established and operated at St. Paul's Hospital. Gift Shop proceeds continue to support St. Paul's Hospital Foundation. Some Alumni still serve as volunteers at the hospital, and in the gift shop, (now operated by the Foundation), and in various capacities with the Foundation.

Saskatoon Alumni offer an Honor Guard at funerals of their members and participate in choirs for various special hospital and alumni events. The Alumni association offers scholarships to graduates of St. Paul's School of Nursing who are pursuing advanced education, and to their children and grandchildren who may be entering or are enrolled in nursing programs.
