Award Detail Information

Name Three Sisters Annual Bursary
Description This award was created in honour of three one-of-kind nurses. Betty & Becky were retired nurses who were members of the Victoria Order of Nurses. These ladies dedicated their lives to the nursing profession and to serving the community of Vancouver. Betty and Becky lived independently in the 1950s, owning their own homes, travelling the world, and tending their gardens together. Before their passing, they spoke of their desire to serve the world even if not physically present. This award is also in honour of Becky’s mother, Edith who was also a nurse. This award hopes to carry on the legacy of these exceptional women through supporting CNC’s renowned nursing program and fulfill the need for nurses and medical professionals in our region.
