Stanton (nee Creeggan), Sheila

Sheila graduated from the Toronto General School of Nursing in 1951, and received her BSN from the University of Windsor in 1965 and her MSN from the University of Western Ontario in 1970.  She held nursing positions in Ontario before being hired as a teacher at the University of Western Ontario in 1970.  In 1975 she was hired as an Associate Professor at UBC’s School of Nursing.

Sheila believes that the role of the nurse has progressed from being caregiver to a skilled technician.  The nurse has become increasingly a health educator and councilor, and thus more involved with decision making.
