McGill renames nursing school following $9-million gift

September 11, 2012

On Monday McGill University's School of Nursing launched a new patient- and family-centred initiative, made possible by a $9-million donation from entrepreneur and philanthropist Richard S. Ingram. McGill also announced the school has been renamed the Ingram School of Nursing in honor of Ingram's longtime support of nursing at the university and across Quebec. The McGill Nursing Collaborative Program for Education and Innovation in Patient and Family-Centred Care will build on evidence-based clinical research to improve outcomes for patients. It is a partnership involving the university's teaching hospitals and supported by a new Chair in Nursing Research and Innovative Practice. McGill News Release | Montreal Gazette | CTV
