Administrative history

Scharley Bryce Brown organized BC’s Graduate Nurses Association in 1912. In 1918 a Registered Nurses Act was passed to form the RNABC. Provincial legislation was enacted in 2005 to create the College of Registered Nurses of BC (CRNBC) from the RNABC. On September 4, 2018 the BC College of Nursing Professionals was formed through an amalgamation of the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of BC, the College of Registered Nurses of BC and the College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of BC.

Custodial history

Scope and content

Subfonds consists of 39 black and white photographs of RNABC and CRNBC presidents and 5 of executive directors. Dimensions of photographs are 12 cm x 17 cm. Biographical information accompanies presidents up to Elaine Baxter (1993-1995). The photographs are arranged chronologically. Brief one-page biographical notes of their subjects accompany all photographs from Scharley Bryce Brown (1912-1917) to Elaine Baxter (1993-1995).

These photographs were originally hung in the Board Room 3 in the College’s former offices. Those of the Presidents have been left within their frames, which are generally more permanent. Those of the Executive Directors have been removed.
