BCHNS is pleased to congratulate one of our founding members, Helen Shore who received one of two “UBC Nursing Partnership Awards” — given by the Director of the School. Helen received it for all her support to students and researchers in public health and community nursing through the Helen Shore Endowment Fund. Our Sincere Congratulations Helen!
Congratulations to Dr. Geertje Boschma of the UBC School of Nursing.
Geertje received a UBC Killam Teaching Award (one of three) given to UBC faculty who have been nominated by students, colleagues, and alumni for excellence in teaching. “They have been recognized by their students and peers alike as having created unique learning experiences for their students and sending them forward with life lessons and skills well beyond the core course material. They are truly making a difference in their respective programs”. Well done, Geertje!

This first and only in-depth analysis of the attire worn by the largest workforce in the health care system explores the role of the nurse’s uniform in creating nursing identity for over a hundred years.
