The Barbara Vance Bursary in Nursing

Established by Edna Vance in honour of Barbara Vance, BNSC 1974.

In 1970 our daughter applied and was accepted into the Nursing Science program at Queen's. It gave us a very proud feeling to know that both our children would be at Queen's. Our son, Howard, would be going on in postgraduate work in Civil Engineering and Barbara enrolled in Nursing.

On June 20, 1970 our son tragically drowned in a sailing accident. Barbara left Ottawa for Queen's in early September of that year and graduated in 1974.
