History of Nursing in Pacific Canada

Interview with Sheila Rankin Zerr, Adjunct Professor at the UBC School of Nursing Sullivan, Allison; Zerr, Sheila Rankin


The Consortium for Nursing History Inquiry commissioned an interview with Sheila Zerr to discuss the process of conducting oral history projects in the field of nursing. In the early 1990s, the then Registered Nurses Association of British Columbia conducted a large scale oral history collection project that aimed to gather early stories of nursing history throughout the province. Sheila served as a project manager and interviewer for these histories and she shares her experiences with students hoping to replicate this kind of oral history collection.
