Dates of existence
Patricia Stanojevic attained her Bachelors of Science, Nursing from the University of British Columbia and her Maters of Science (Applied) from McGill University. As a masters’ student at McGill University’s School for Graduate Nurses, Patricia Stanojevic explored the concept of nursing and its impact on practitioner performance for her thesis (1967). Her thesis looked at how the concept of nursing develops early through student experiences at schools of nursing. She demonstrated that nursing students quickly recognized the importance of the nurse in a clinical setting and how these concepts shaped their future work and professional life. She was appointed as Director of the Toronto General Hospital School of Nursing in 1971 and continued to pursue this interest.
Ms. Stanojevic served on numerous committees and task forces throughout her career. As Director of the Toronto General Hospital Campus, she served as a member of the Task Force on the Role of RNAO in Relation to the Education of Nurses task force. The Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario (RNAO) struck the Task Force in November 1973. The purpose was to review and develop the beliefs of the RNAO with respect to education, to coordinate groups working in these areas, and to develop a plan for future action for the RNAO. In 1979, the Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario (RNAO) developed standards to assist educational institutions plan, implement and evaluate re-entry programs for graduate nurses. Ms. Stanovejic was chair of the Working Party on Mechanism for Re-entry into Nursing, the group assigned to produce these standards for the RNAO. In February 1982, the CNA Board of Directors established the Ad Hoc Committee to Review the Role of CNA in Testing and Measurement to revise its terms of reference, clarify financial status of the testing service, and to make recommendations to facilitate future development. Patricia Stanojevic, a member of the Executive Committee, served as chair to this committee.
