History

In 1950 the Toronto Western Hospital School of Nursing was renamed the Atkinson School of Nursing of the Toronto Western Hospital when a grant was received from the Atkinson Foundation for Nursing Education. At the same time the School became independent of the Toronto Western Hospital's Department of Nursing with the appointment of a Director of Nursing Service to head the Department, while Miss Gladys J. Sharpe became Director of Nursing Education, in charge of the School.

From 1950-1955 a pilot program was carried out at the School, by which the education program was reduced from three years to two years and a one-year internship. In 1955 this change was adopted permanently.

Following Miss Sharpe’s retirement in 1951, Blanche Duncanson (1951-1958) and Amy Griffin (1958 - ?) served as Director of Nursing Education. Beginning in 1972 the Atkinson School of Nursing was gradually phased out of independent existence, and in 1974 the School was formally dissolved and its functions transferred to George Brown College.
