I first met Mrs. Beatrice Wu when I attended the orientation of nursing training at the Nursing School of Queen Elizabeth Hospital in 1977. Because of her dedication to the nursing education, I can see how well our curriculum was set up and how effective she managed the school. After 3 years of working in general wards, she accepted me to the nursing course of Intensive Nursing Care. This was the turning point of my nursing career because I continued working in Intensive Care Unit in both Hong Kong and Canada for the following 33 years. I am so grateful for Mrs. Wu's effort and contribution to Hong Kong nursing education that equipped lots of youngsters to be prudent nurses.

May Mrs. Wu rest in God's merciful hands and enjoy her eternal life with all the angels and her ancestors in the heaven!

May the Lord comfort her family with His loving presence and fill them with His peace during this difficult time and in the days to come.

class 1965 Deeply saddened on the passing of Mrs Beatrice Wu. Remember fondly, simply her presence would command sustained concentration and enthusiasm. Her educating technique was unique, had worked effectively in motivating us. Responsibly she expected from us professionalism with proficient knowledge and skills. Humbling me to present days, despite of family commitments and regular huge workloads on school programs, she wrote me several times after I had moved to Canada. Her messages were always thoughtful, caring, of encouragement, support and wisdom. A kind, warm, strong person with principle, integrity, determination, endurance and significant outstanding achievements. I am not I am today without her positive guidance. Her professional legacy will forever be cherished. She will be dearly missed. Solemnly with respect [well earned], honor and gratitude.

Class of Sept ’68, QEH

I am taking the liberty in writing this short passage on behalf of my classmates, class of September ’68, to pay tributes to an outstanding nurse educator of our era.
Mrs Beatrice Wu, known to us as Miss B Chan while we were students was known for her amazing clinical knowledge, commitment to excellence, dedication to professional nursing, exceptional pedagogical skills and discipline. As a nurse tutor, she was truly ahead of her time. I do not have any personal anecdotes to share (because I was never called to the office) other than a mental image of professorial teacher and an inspiring figure who commanded respect.
Mrs Wu was a leading nurse educator, a trail blazer, a standards setter, and a role model to students and practitioners alike.
We salute you, Mrs Wu and we say thank you.
Rest in peace ... you will be missed!

Ms. Chan is an outstanding figure in our nursing profession especially in the field of education. She has had nurtured thousands and thousands of nurses. I am sure those who had been taught by Ms. B Chan, would never forget her. Though she appeared to be strict and stern, yet she had a kind heart and cared very much about her students.

I am one of her students graduated in 1967. Her influence over me engages my life-long gratitude. She is my career role model. She enabled me to become a nurse educator since 1973 and enlightened me the importance of continuous education. Without this insight, I would never be able teaching nurses at the university level. For 40 years, I remain my enthusiasm in nursing education. In this perspective, I should forever be grateful to her. Thank her so much for her upbringing me to be a life-long nurse educator.

After Ms Chan migrated to Canada, whenever my husband, Leonard Yeung and I went to Vancouver, we used to pay her a visit. I still remember her happy face when she met us. We miss you, Ms. Chan - our beloved and respectful tutor, boss & senior. May you rest in peace.

Our condolences to Alva, Zion and family.

My sincere condolence to the family. I was Ms. B Chan's student in the class of April 1968 QEH. I got called into her office for a pep talk or warning because of my low score in my exam. She strongly advised me to study harder and work harder. I am very much thankful to her private talk up to now. Her expectation invested in me was not lost. Following her advice, I studied and worked in England and settled in Montreal 1975. I am one of the high achieving administrators since 1977 retired in 2014, and my final working language is French (surprise!) I am forever grateful to Ms. B Chan and her team of tutors.

Miss Chan, even I didn't practise nursing much in the hospital after graduation, but your training helped me to discipline myself to strive for the best in many stages of my life. Thank you so much. Will always miss you dearly.

I am one of her earliest students, from June 28, 1954 to 1957.
She was very strict, and demanding for nursing procedures to perfection. She taught me a systemic approach in any nursing situation. After graduation, I had worked in various hospitals
until I retired at 65. I am very proud of myself that I had done well, that I could easily handle any nursing situation. I am sure her dedication in nursing teaching would have resulted in many outstanding nurses. I am lucky that I had the opportunity to have fellowship with Ms. B. Chan for many years since she migrated to Vancouver
