Elspeth (Kilpatrick) Bell, BCSc(N)’ 30

Although we don’t know a great deal about Elspeth, we do know that she left a lasting legacy on the UBC School of Nursing. Her sister, Heather Kilpatrick, graduated from the School in 1931 and went on to have an illustrious career in nursing leadership. Elspeth married and her daughter Jan (married name Jan Scott) was one of the 1958 grads who continued to be a source of support for the School. Jan frequently provided clinical instruction to nursing students at UBC over the course of many years, and was a faithful participant in alumni events and School gatherings until her death in 2016. Jan was always incredibly proud of the “nursing heritage” her mother and aunt had instilled in her.
