Thompson, Ray Malcolm (1942-

Born in Nova Scotia, Ray received his RN from the Victoria General Hospital School of Nursing in Halifax, and his BScN and MSN from the University of Western Ontario.  He worked as a nurse and instructor at a number of hospitals, including the Toronto General Hospital and the Wellesley Hospital School of Nursing.  From 1972 he was a faculty member (the first male) at the UBC School of Nursing.

In his later years the main focus of his teaching was community health nursing.  His greatest areas of satisfaction have been clinical practice and the clinical teaching of students, as he believes that clinical practice is the essence of nursing.
