Dr. Munro was central to 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.  From its inception in 1992, the UPEI School of Nursing has 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.
