Former faculty inducted into CNA Hall of FamePublished 11/18/2009

Two former faculty from the University of Colorado Denver College of Nursing were recently inducted into the Colorado Nurses Association (CNA) Hall of Fame.
Ruth Colestock became a nursing instructor at the University of Colorado School of Nursing after it moved to Denver and accepted its first class in September 1924. She envisioned the school as an independent unit that controlled its own budget, employed nursing faculty and offered a bachelor’s in nursing.
Colestock revised curriculums, planned national conferences and developed post-graduate certificate programs. In 1949, the school was separated from the College of Arts and Sciences and the Medical School and it became a collegiate school of nursing. She was born May 8, 1894, and died Jan. 18, 1984.
Dorothy “Dort” Gregg began her career in psychiatric nursing in 1947 at the State Hospital in Pueblo. She began her career at the University of Colorado after receiving her master’s degree from Columbia University.
As associate professor and coordinator for the psychiatric nursing programs, she was instrumental in developing the master’s of science psychiatric nurse program.
Gregg has received several accolades and established psychiatric nursing symposia. With more than 40 years in academics, she has served on and chaired numerous university and school committees.  
Among her many awards are the CU Gold Medal Award, the CU Distinguished Alumna Award and the Outstanding Psychiatric Nursing Clinician Award.
