Administrative history

The Grace Hospital Training School for Nurses originated as the Training School for Nurses for the Toronto Homeopathic Hospital in 1890. In 1936 the process of amalgamation linking Grace Hospital with the Toronto Western Hospital (TWH) was completed and the TWH School of Nursing subsumed the functions of the Grace Hospital Training School for Nurses.

Miss Georgie L. Rowan served as Director of the Grace Hospital Training School for Nurses 1911-1936. Following the dissolution of both Grace Hospital and the Training School for Nurses in 1936, Miss Rowan became Supervisor of Nursing for the Private Patients Pavilion of the TWH until retiring in 1943.
