School of Nursing
The Holy Name Medical Center School of Nursing traces its beginning to the foundation of the Medical Center itself in 1925 - when it opened with a class comprised of just 13 women. Exceptional nursing care was the trademark of the school during its inception and has continued throughout its strong 90 year history.

Additionally, we fully understand that professional nursing requires the utmost dedication to fostering the integrity and worth of all individuals who require health care.
