Abstract

M. Jean Wilson was viewed by her colleagues as a woman who influenced and advanced university nursing education and created unique strategies to develop nursing programs at the University of Toronto. Her career in Toronto spanned 39 years and encompassed every aspect of the evolving nursing education program at the university. On April 11, 1974, her students organized her retirement party because they "felt a great need to honour one of the most admired and skillful teachers of the faculty." The following biography traces Miss Wilson's career from Saskatchewan to Toronto where she worked under the tutelage of Miss Kathleen Russell and developed her teaching skills. Wilson always attributed her success to the mentoring she received from Russell. It was as teacher, colleague and friend that M. Jean Wilson assisted Kathleen Russell and developed her teaching skills. Wilson always attributed her success to the mentoring she received from Russell. It was as teacher, colleague and friend that M. Jean Wilson assisted Kathleen Russell in her goal to win the support of the nursing community, the academic community and the community-at-large for her integrated and independent model of nursing education.
