Administrative / Biographical History

Dundee College of Nursing was opened on 7th June 1969 and the first Principal was Mr. F. Ellis. The College was developed to fulfil the policy of the Eastern Regional Hospital Board Nurse Training Committee that there should be a single school in the Dundee area for the training of student nurses for admission to the General or other Parts of the Register of Nurses, and for all pupil nurses training for admission to the Roll of Nurses. The opening of the new College provided instruction for 500 student and pupil nurses from general and mental hospitals in the Dundee area.
