2024 marks 35 years for the UBC School of Nursing Class of 1989!

It was only five years ago, on July 13, 2019, that the UBC School of Nursing, Class of 1989, celebrated their 30th reunion with 48 members of their graduating class. While the class intended to celebrate at 25 years, they made the decision to delay the reunion when the graduating class experienced the sudden loss of classmate Diana Gamage. They remembered her fondly as they gathered at the Pinnacle Hotel at Lonsdale Quay in North Vancouver, BC.   

The group had a wonderful dinner, and a slideshow of memories from their time at UBC that was prepared by Mitchel Erickson who said, “It was wonderful to catch up with old friends and share personal memories as well as learn of everyone’s nursing career to date.” The variety of career trajectories of each classmate speaks to the diversity of professional contributions to health care that a nurse can make.  Many went on to graduate school and worked in several countries showing the true global reach of UBC School of Nursing alumni. While others worked in the Vancouver movie and television industry as healthcare experts ensuring accurate representation. 

The following day, a small but mighty group of the classmates gathered for a hike to the Lynn Headwaters on the Northshore Mountains. The trek scenery reminded all of the privilege we share living or visiting the Lower Mainland. 

Many thanks to the organizing committee, which included Mitchel Erickson, Rachel French DeMejia, Colleen Jeffery, Carol Rochford, and Bruce Gamage.
