Beatrice Grace Varley, RN

Beatrice Grace Varley, RN

Female 1908 - 2005  (96 years)


Varley, B. Grace (1908 - 2005) - Memories

The evening before our first day - trying on our uniforms & meeting on the stair landing (no sitting room) in the Dennison House - Rusholme Rd. & College St. This was a time to meet our classmates - last names only were used.

Sept. 28 - first day of our careers - orientation - classes - learning more - doing more with patients - studying, working on the wards. "Will I make it?" - never quite sure.

The "Cap Day" following six months of probation. Worked 12 hr. night duty for 2 months. Given more responsibilities - sleep time broken for classes. Never got a whole day off until holiday time.

Holidays - go home, rest up, ready for another year.

Spent 2 months at Sick Children's Hosp. - enjoyed my time there. Some students went to the Psychiatric Hosp. in Guelph. 2 months Public Health - really interesting. 2 months diet kitchen.

Then - wonderful day - graduation "1931" held in the garden at Rusholm Rd. in the afternoon followed by a dance in the evening. It was a wonderful day - graduation ceremonies - family - friends - flowers. A perfect June day to remember.
