Naam van de archiefvormer
The Alberta Association of Registered Nurses was formed in 1916. Subsequently, districts and chapters were formed throughout the province for the support, continuing education and mobilization of their members. The first Grande Prairie Chapter of the Alberta Association of Registered Nurses was formed in 1950, long after nursing services came to the area in 1909. A forerunner of the Association was the Nurses’ Club formed in 1941. In January 1950, this club moved to become a chapter of the AARN for the purpose of the support, continuing education and mobilization of their members. Members included nurses working at the Municipal Hospital, the Auxiliary Hospital, the Grande Prairie Health Unit and the Victorian Order of Nurses. In 1966 the AARN divided the province into districts and the Grande Prairie Chapter became part of Chapter 16. They were an active chapter in the North District until the dissolution of the district in 1999.
Some of the records, including a group of framed photographs, were donated to the Grande Prairie Museum by the Grande Prairie Nurse's Club in 1970. A further accrual was acquired by the museum in 1999 from Barbara Bragg, a member of the Grande Prairie Chapter of the AARN.
