Owen (nee Ford), Alice E. (1913-2003)

Alice, the great-niece of Florence Nightingale, recalls accompanying a brain injured/blind patient to Denmark as one of her most memorable experiences.  Born in Humboldt, Saskatchewan, she received her RN from VGH in 1938.  She nursed at a number of Lower Mainland locations, finally as Nurse-in-Charge at the Red Cross from 1965 to 1976.  She believes that nursing no longer has the character or prestige it once enjoyed, partly because of the absence of uniforms.
