|Background:||This annual award was established by Dr. Margaret F. Munro. Dr. Munro was involved with the creation of the UPEI School of Nursing beginning in 1990 when she was seconded from the Faculty of Nursing at the University of Calgary to develop the nursing program at the University of Prince Edward Island. In 1991, Dr. Munro was invited to become the Founding Dean of the new UPEI School of Nursing and remained in that position until July 1997 when she retired. The curriculum of this school was the first in Canada to be developed based directly on the principles of primary health care. Within the program, UPEI School of Nursing maintained the goal of preparing graduates to practice nursing from those principles and also to give leadership in primary health care through their own professional nursing practice. Dr. Munro wrote the book Forward in Faith: Establishing the School of Nursing at the University of Prince Edward Island telling the story of the School's beginnings. In 2011, the UPEI School of Nursing welcomed its first cohort of Master in Nursing students. Dr. Munro supports the UPEI School of Nursing in many ways. She provides for student awards, scholarship and bursaries, offers guidance on program delivery and teaches. She has also participated as a community member in the student assessment component of the Nursing Program.|
