Administrative history

In 1933, the Ottawa General Hospital relinquishes its control over the École de Garde-Malades d'Youville in favour of the University and is named École des gardes-malades. It is renamed the École d'infirmières de l'Université d'Ottawa in 1943. It then becomes the first bilingual school of nursing in Canada. It is also the first school to join the Faculties of the University; moreover it is the fifth university school of nursing to be created in Canada. Since its beginning a three-year nursing certificate programme leading to provincial examinations is organized. A bachelor of nursing program is introduced to its new contingent in 1962. In 1972, the École changes its name to School of Nursing. In 1978, it joins the Faculty of Health Sciences.
