HISTORY

The College of Nursing began in 1930 as one of the departments of the College of Liberal Arts. During the first fifteen years the nursing programs became so varied, the enrollment so large, and the contribution to the total community so important that reorganization was necessary. In 1944, at the request of the College of Liberal Arts, the Board of Education authorized the establishment of the College of Nursing. The College began to function as one of the components of the University in the spring of 1945.

In 1947 under the leadership of Katherine Faville, the College’s first dean, the faculty assumed full responsibility for teaching clinical nursing courses. This was the first time the shifting of clinical teaching from hospital staff to nursing faculty was initiated. This model has now been incorporated by colleges and schools of nursing. Graduates from this program were eligible to take the examination for the registered nurse license.

Since 1945, the College has had programs leading to the degree of Master of Science in Nursing. These programs offer advanced practice preparation for nurse practitioners and clinical nurse specialists.

In 1975, the College began offering a program leading to the Doctor of Philosophy in Nursing.
