Nursing Alumni Leaps in the Dark

Report captures University of Edinburgh Nursing alumni memories.

In 2016 Nursing Studies at the University of Edinburgh celebrated its 60th anniversary. Established in 1956, it is the longest standing academic department of nursing in the United Kingdom (UK) and Europe. The occasion was marked with a number of high profile events, including a visit from the University’s Chancellor, Her Royal Highness the Princess Royal, and an alumni conference for the University’s nursing alumni. At the conference, alumni were invited to share memories of their time at Edinburgh, and their life experiences since graduating. Many of those memories and reflections are captured in the project report ‘Leaps in the Dark: Celebrating 60 Years of Nursing Studies at the University of Edinburgh- Capturing the Memories of Nursing Studies Alumni.’
