Fall convocation for Health Sciences students at McGill University was held in the afternoon of October 29th at Place des Arts, in downtown Montreal. Included among the graduating class were 110 graduates from the Ingram School of Nursing, 25 from the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders, 4 from the School of Physical and Occupational Therapy and 1 from the School of Medicine.
“These 4 years at McGill I have felt very well supported in my program and am now well prepared for my job,” said Stephanie Avery a Nursing graduate who is currently working at the Montreal Children’s Hospital in the Pediatric ICU and who earlier in the day received both the Evelyn Malowany Prize and the Pearson Education in Canada Book Prize during a reception for graduates from the Ingram School of Nursing. “My idea of nursing has changed from the time I started here to now. I now know that nursing has both a scientific and relationship basis – and I love being so present with patients and their families and being able to help support them through a process that can be very stressful for them.”
During separate morning receptions, the Ingram School of Nursing presented four student awards, while the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders presented Martha Perusse with the the Distinguished Alumni Award for Professional Leadership.
Congratulations to all our 2014 Fall graduates!
