Mastering Nursing:
The Benefits of Graduate School
The UBC School of Nursing has long
been a front-runner in offering innovative
and practical programs to suit the needs
of today's nursing students. From the student
fresh out of high school pursuing a
baccalaureate degree in nursing, to the mid-
career nurse seeking professional upgrading,
the School understands the importance of
accessible university education.
Of the 500+ students currendy enrolled
at the School of Nursing, one third are
graduate students. The Master of Science
Degree in Nursing (MSN) is the School's
oldest graduate program. It started in 1968
and has since conferred over 400 master's
degrees to registered nurses.
We recendy caught up with four current
MSN students and asked them, in the light
of todays health care issues, how they feel
about their role in nursing and their decision
to pursue a master's degree in nursing.
Vicky Crompton, Barb Fitzsimmons, Kris
Gustavson, and Karen Ryall are all working
toward an MSN degree at UBC. They are all
also registered nurses working as Patient
Services Directors in Vancouver hospitals.
Karen Ryall, the veteran of the group, is
Patient Services Director in Critical Care at
B.C. Children's Hospital. She describes
the role of Patient Services Director as
one that involves management above all else.
The position requires an in-depth understanding of staffing, planning, budgeting
and quality of care issues. Although Ryall has
many years of experience, she still credits the
MSN degree as helping her to be more
effective on the job.
Barb Fitzsimmons agrees. As Patient Services
Director in Oncology, also at B.C. Children's
Hospital, she says the MSN program has
helped increase her performance in
leadership roles and she is more effective on
the job. In a position that requires decisions
be made that inevitably affect the level of
patient care, it's imperative that the person
making those decisions have a thorough
understanding of how all the pieces work
together. The more knowledge one has about
nursing and nursing issues the more effective
that person will be.
Confronted with the choice between doing
an MBA or an MSN, all four women agree
an MBA would not give them the training
they need. Kris Gustavson, Patient Services
Director at Mount St. Josephs Hospital
Children's Centre, decided it was more
important to stay with nursing education
than to move into management education
and Fitzsimmons is quick to concur. She says
the administrative side of the job is the easy
part. It's all the decisions that affect care

TEACHING giving that are the hard part and for that
you need specialized training. Gustavson
credits the format of the MSN program
courses that encourage open interaction
between students. Participants learn a great
deal from others in the program and can
draw on the experiences of their fellow
students.
Vicky Crompton also cites classroom
interactivity as an integral part of the MSN
program. As Patient Services Director in
Neurosciences at B.C. Children's Hospital,
she too is faced with situations that require
an acute understanding of nursing issues.
For Crompton, the MSN program gives her
a chance to reflect on her performance and
integrate everything she learns, both on the
job and in the classroom.
All four women agree nursing is a
challenging and extremely satisfying
career. The key is not to lose site of why
you're in the profession in the first place.
Ryall says despite the challenges, nursing
is a rewarding career choice and there is
room for growth and development. A
commitment to lifelong learning and
advanced education opens the doors of
opportunity for nurses today.
When asked if they would recommend the
MSN program to fellow nurses the room
fills with a resounding, Yes! Absolutely! The
consensus is, the more nurses we have out
there with MSN degrees, the better off we 11
all be.
All four women expect to complete the
master's program in the spring of 2001.

TOUCHPOINTS Seizing
Opportunities
and Inspiring Action
The seventh Clinical Nurse Specialist Forum
offered by the UBC School of Nursing with the
co-sponsorship of the CNS Professional
Practice Group was held on March 10th at St.
Paul's Hospital in Vancouver. This forum was
designed to bring together nursing
administrators, clinical nurse specialists, nursing
educators and students to discuss issues relevant
to advanced practice.
Almost 100 attendees from a variety of
hospitals and health care agencies throughout
the lower mainland heard from three speakers
addressing the topic Seizing Opportunities/
Inspiring Action. Jo Wearing, RNABC Policy
Consultant, spoke of the proposed changes to
the regulation of the health care profession and
introduced a proposed framework for
additional regulauon. Dr. Rosalie Starzomski
challenged our thinking about the current
status of the health care system and the nursing
shortage. She illustrated how misinformation
can be readily distributed.
Joanna Piros, a woman with a journalism and
media relations background, took the
opportunities inherent in Wearing's and
Starzomski's remarks and focused our attention
on how to turn these into messages she called
"strategic communications". These are
messages that nurses can use to get information
across to the public, to policy makers and key
decision makers both direcdy and through the
media. She provided a framework for designing
"core messages" from which nursing can speak
to various issues. One core message that
permeates communication about nursing was
taken from the discussion of changes in the
scope of practice. It was stated as: "Everything
nurses do is driven by the best interests of the
patient." Piros illustrated how other messages
about nursing shortages, work place stress and
changes in the regulation supporting
independent practice can all stem from this
core message.
In addition to the stimulating and thought-
provoking presentations and discussion, the
forum provided valuable opportunities for
networking and spending time with colleagues.
Many positive comments were received.
The National Conference of Advanced Practice
Nurses will be held in Vancouver, October 25-
26, 2001.

Director's Note
The up-coming nursing spring convocation on May 29th will be a
special one for the School. Not only will it be the first convocation of
the new century, but it is also occurring in our 80th anniversary year.
We'll see Dr. Alice Baumgart receive an honorary doctorate and we'll
be seeing off the last graduating class of the generic baccalaureate
(CBSN) program. The CBSN program had its first graduates in 1990
and the program produced a decade of graduates who have provided
excellence in nursing care in B.C. and in countries abroad. Many
graduates went on to graduate degrees and to leadership positions in
the profession. The CBSN program is being replaced by the Multiple
Entry Option (MEO) Baccalaureate Program.
One myth that continues to surface is that individuals are not
interested in a career in nursing. Yet in September 1999, there were
97 qualified applicants denied admission to the UBC baccalaureate
program due to lack of space. Of these, 55 were applicants to year
one and 42 were applicants to year three of the MEO program. The
shortage of registered nurses in practice and leadership positions in
health care agencies continues to be a concern. Equally of concern,
but not highlighted as much, is the looming shortage of academic
nurses in B.C. and across the country. Academic nurses present the
same demographics as nurses in general and many will be reaching
retirement age in the next decade. The School is currently developing
a hiring and retention plan to address this impending shortage.
Our international initiatives continue to expand. We have recently
signed a partnership agreement with Kochi University School of
Nursing in Kochi, Japan. The agreement will facilitate faculty and
student exchanges between the two universities. Dr. JoAnn Perry was
recently at Kochi to work with the Director of the School of Nursing,
Junko Takano, on discussions of gerentological nursing, issues in
Canadian nursing and nursing theory in 2001.
Many of the recent activities and up-coming events at the school are
highlighted throughout this issue of Tc

1    I   TOUCHPOINTS Nursing Alumna Receives
Honorary Doctorate
On May 29th the University of British Columbia will bestow an
honorary doctorate degree upon Dr. Alice Baumgart.
Dr. Baumgart graduated from UBC in
1958 with an undergraduate degree in
nursing. She went on to do a master's
degree at McGill in Montreal and then
completed a doctorate degree at the
University of Toronto. Dr. Baumgart was
part of the UBC SON faculty from
1964-73. Shchelped launch the MSN

degree program and facilitated the
development of integrated health
sciences disciplines at UBC.
Although Alice Baumgart's time of late
has been spent away from the UBC
SON—she was Vice-Principal, Professor
and later Dean of Nursing at Queen's
University and is now Interim Director
of Nursing at Western Michigan
University—her impact on the School
and on the nursing profession at-large
has been profound.
A leader in nursing, health care and
academic administration, Alice
Baumgart has been giving voice to
nursing, medicine, public health and
long-term care organizational issues for
decades. Dr. Baumgart's career has been
committed to nursing education, needs
of practicing nurses and nurses'
participation in the political process. She
helped shape many of Canada's policies
on nursing and health care during the
1980s and 1990s.
Dr. Baumgart has been actively involved
with various nursing groups throughout
her career including the Canadian Nurses
Association (CNA), the Canadian
Association of University Schools of
Nursing (CAUSN), VON Canada, and
the Canadian Public Health Association,
as well as Registered Nurses' Associations
in various provinces, and numerous
provincial health care groups including
the Canadian Medical Association. In
many of these roles Dr. Baumgart
assumed a leadership position. She was
President of CNA, CAUSN and VON
Canada, and sat on the Board of
Directors for VON Canada and the
Registered Nurses Association of British
Columbia. She recently sat on the Board
of Directors for the International Council
of Nurses (ICN)—an organization
representing nurses in over 100
countries—and was Chair for the ICN's
Task Force developing an international
classification for nursing practice.
Known nationally and internationally,
Dr. Baumgart is a frequent keynote
speaker at nursing conferences around
the world. She is currendy undertaking
research in Ontario for a five-nation
study that seeks to understand how
hospital organization and staffing affect
patient care and nurses' work. UBC
SON Acting Director, Dr. Sonia Acorn,
is working on the same project here in
British Columbia.
Dr. Baumgart has published coundess
articles and books on nursing. Her work
has appeared in Canadian Journal of
Public Health, The Canadian Nurse,
International Nursing Review, Special
Education Canada and Journal of
Advanced Nursing. She is the author of
Health Behavior: Emerging Research
Perspectives, and is author, co-editor and
contributor to Canadian Nursing Faces
the Future, a standard text for nursing
undergraduate courses in Canada.
Alice Baumgart has been the recipient of
many distinguished awards in her time,
both scholarly and professional. Her
Majesty the Queen's 25th Anniversary
Medal, the Distinguished Service Award
from Queen's University, the Ethel Johns
Award from CAUSN and the UBC
Alumni Association's 75th Anniversary
Award of Merit are just a few of the
honors Dr. Baumgart has received.
Her contribution to nursing and nursing
education has been extensive and her
influence has been felt in health care
organizations, colleges and universities
across the country. The UBC School of
Nursing is proud to have Dr. Baumgart
as Alumna and is honored to call her a
friend. We are all impressed with her
professional and personal achievements
and consider her a deserving candidate
for an honorary doctorate. Our heartiest
congratulations go out to her.

Forum
Xi Eta's annual nursing research forum
was held on February 7th at St. Paul's
Hospital Conference Centre in Vancouver.
With over 100 people in attendance and
eighteen research presentations, it certainly
was a stimulating event.
Dr. Cheryl Forchuk opened with a
dynamic plenary presentation, Therapeutic
Relationships: From Hospital to Community,
based on Hildegard Peplau's theory of the
Interpersonal Therapeutic Relationship.
Dr. Forchuk's research program has
proceeded through qualitative and
quantitative methods to action research
with mentally ill patients. The program's
next phase will be a multi-site project.
This phase will involve nurses and other
health care professionals and it will
incorporate the effectiveness of
community follow-through after discharge
from hospital. The project will evaluate
the effectiveness of nursing and peer
support. Dr. Forchuk's presentation was
enthusiastically received for both its
exemplary content and its engaging
delivery.
For the closing plenary session, Cheryl
Cran, described by audiences as
outrageously optimistic, energetic,
inspirational and contagious in her
passion—was just that! She challenged
everyone to practice her three maxims.
• Practice
the power of positive expectations.
• Pursue
your dreams—life is too short.
No matter what situation you find
yourself in you have the
• Power to choose.
Food and refreshments were available
throughout the forum as were a number
of door prizes. There were also several
well-deserved awards. Five students from
Trinity Western University won the prize
for the school of nursing with the greatest
number of undergraduate registrants.
A sincere thank you to France Bourhillette
and her committee: Lois Blaise, Ann
Dewar, Janice Muir, Louise Racine, Eleanor
Ravenscroft, Diane Sawchuk and Lisa
Venables for the well-organized,
informative and enjoyable day's forum.
Ethel Johns would have been proud of you.

Adjunct Faculty:
a Valuable Resource
If any of you have looked up Nursing in the
UBC Calendar lately you'll notice a list of all
faculty members at the School of Nursing.
You'll also notice an even longer list of
adjunct faculty at the School of Nursing. So
what do all these people do?
Adjunct faculty are nursing leaders outside of
the UBC School of Nursing that contribute
to the School in various ways. Teaching
classes, facilitating clinical placements,
helping students with theses and major
papers, collaborating on research and working
on school committees are just some of the
projects that involve these individuals.
All adjuncts are distinguished, qualified
professionals whose work is correlated to the
teaching, research and academic goals of the
School of Nursing. Individuals are often
invited by the School to apply for a position
or they can apply unsolicited. Most positions
are for a three-year term and renewable with
re-application. Many agree it's an honor to be
an adjunct faculty member, and there is a
great amount of prestige involved with the
official appointment.
The School of Nursing has been looking for a
way to recognize the contributions of our
adjuncts. This year we will honor them with
a luncheon on June 15 on the UBC
campus. Invitations will be mailed in May.

Pins and badges were long used by nurses
to proclaim their identity to the world. A
silver locket with a red cross was given to
graduates of the first Canadian school of
nursing in 1878. From that time, gold or
silver lockets, medals, or pins were used
to identify legitimate graduates of a
school of nursing.
In 1923, the first graduates of the
University of British Columbia's degree
program received the Vancouver General
Hospital (VGH) School of Nursing pin; a
gold bar and medal with a red cross. The
VGH pin, its design essentially
unchanged over time, was given to all
UBC graduates until 1960.
The first badge, a felt skull and
crossbones, (1) was devised by members
of the Science Girls' Club to identify
undergraduates in the degree program.
This Club started in 1925 and is the
forerunner of today's Nursing
Undergraduate Society (NUS). The badge
was worn on sweaters and blazers during
the 1930s.
During the 1950s, the NUS used a small
lapel pin showing a crest with a sun and
lamp (2). The School's BSN gold
graduate pin (3) was designed by the
1958 graduating class for use when the
UBC program separated from VGH.
Graduates from earlier years could
purchase UBC pins if they wished.
Students wore a distinctive cloth badge
with the University's crest (4) during the
1960s and early 1970s. A badge showing
clasped hands, indicating caring and
nurturing, (5) was introduced in the
1970s to be worn on nursing uniforms.
The UBC RN graduate pin featured the
same motif. This was given at the end of
second year during the two-plus-two
program (1973 to 1979) when students
could write registration exams and leave
the program at the end of second year.
The clasped-hands badge continued to
identify students in the integrated four-
year program until 1990. A badge based
on the BSN pin (6) was introduced in
1990 but generally faded from use with
the introduction of hospital photo
identification badges that we use today.
(4)
The authors would like to hear from
anyone who has more information
about the pins and badges, such
dates they were used. We do not
have a two-year RN pin (i973-
1979), and would be delighted to
hear from anyone who could loan
it for a photograph or donate it to
the School of Nursing's historical
collection. Please contact the UBC
School of Nursing.

TOUCHPOINTS CAUSN
Once again, UBC Nursing did itself
proud by its leadership role in the recent
CAUSN National Nurse Educators'
Conference held in Vancouver. This
conference, sponsored by Western Region
CAUSN and UBC Nursing with the
theme Celebrating Achievements and
Embracing Challenges, was the first of its
kind, and was by all accounts a huge
success. A national steering committee,
led by Cheryl Entwisde, brought a
nationwide perspective to the meeting,
which attracted over 300 registrants from
Canada, the US, Japan and Australia.
Carol Jillings was the 'meeting master'
with her usual grace and humour. Official
greetings to the delegates were brought
from UBC by Michael Issacson, Dean of
Applied Science as well as John Gilbert,
Coordinator of Health Sciences and
Katharyn May from National CAUSN.
The program committee, chaired by
Wendy Hall with able assistance from
Ann Hilton and Gloria Joachim, reviewed
almost 200 abstracts for paper and poster
presentations. Many of the sessions dealt
with critical issues in nursing education
such as the appropriate use of technology
in conventional and distance delivery
courses, strategies to address diversity in
the classroom and in the profession, new
developments in learner-centred pedagogy
and innovations in curriculum design for
the next century. A number of UBC
faculty and students presented papers and
poster sessions.
UBC Nursing was well represented in
other aspects of the meeting as well.
Professor Emerita Janet Gormick received
her honorary lifetime membership to
Western Region CAUSN in recognition
of her years of active involvement in WR
CAUSN and her long and productive
career as a nurse educator, as did Marnie
Wood from the University of Alberta and
an alumna of UBC's MSN program.
The social committee, Leslie Stuart,
Dawna Claxton, Carol Jillings and Sheila
Rankin Zerr, did a brilliant job of the
arrangements 'on the ground', including
some very unusual entertainment at the
banquet which provided laughter and
even prompted a conga line performance
by those in attendance. UBC faculty also
provided some entertainment and
demonstrated to all that we are better
teachers than dancers.
The energy and excitement throughout
the three-day meeting was apparent to all
who were present. Discussions were held
on ways to mobilize nursing education to
influence policy at provincial and national
levels, and information was presented on
the work to develop a national strategy for
nursing education. Given the huge success
of this meeting, plans are already
underway for a second National Nurse
Educators' Conference to be held in
Adantic Canada in 2002.
