    Administrative history

    The Nursing PhD Program: A Reality (NPPR) was an ad hoc committee comprising Graduate Nursing Students. Its primary objective was to lobby for financial support for the establishment of a PhD Program in Nursing at the University of Alberta (UofA). In 1989, committee members, convinced of the necessity of doctoral preparation in nursing for the profession's advancement, initiated lobbying efforts to secure funding for the program. In addition to lobbying the University and the Provincial Government, members sought support from the private sector, including corporations, businesses, foundations, and individuals. The group remained active until approval and funding for the program was announced on December 21st, 1990.

    Custodial history

    The records were transferred to the Alberta Association of Registered Nurses Archives and Museum by Dr. Rodger in 1992. The College and Association of Registered Nurses of Alberta (CARNA) donated the records to the Provincial Archives of Alberta in 2017.
