Vera Marshe Nursing Education Grant

Congratulations to this year’s recipients of the Vera Marshe Nursing Education Grant, Lizzette Dela Pena and Emily MacDougal who were honoured at the October Nursing Advisory Council Meeting!

 

The Vera Marshe Memorial Fund was established by Vera’s devoted husband William Phare Marshe after her passing in 1993. Vera’s academic career took her to St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto where Vera took a post graduate course in Operating Room Administration and Surgical Procedures. In 1952, Vera was invited by the Director of Nursing in Galt to supervise the surgical service program of the new Hospital, South Waterloo Memorial Hospital, slated to open the following year.  Along with Dr. Neil Watters, Vera “modernized” the ophthalmologist and anaesthetist- as well as support staff. Among her many accomplishments, Vera Marshe developed the first “triage” plan in which multiple accident victims were assessed and prioritized for treatment. Vera also pioneered the insertion of opaque material in surgical sponges so they would show up on x-rays. Those who knew Vera will tell you that she had a fine sense of humour and that she enjoyed entertaining, travel, reading and music!

 

The Vera Marshe Nursing Education Grant at CMH is accessible to full and part time staff enrolled in programs related to their work through a recognized accredited education facility and courses must relate to improving the applicants knowledge and professional development related to their current and/or future role within CMH.

 

There will be a new call for applications in January 2019 to be presented during National Nursing Week in May 2019!
