Hunter-Bellevue School of Nursing: Brief History

Nursing education began at Hunter in 1943, when courses for registered nurses were added to its curriculum. In 1955, a four-year collegiate program that was a pioneer for its time — the Hunter College Program in Nursing — was launched. When the Bellevue School of Nursing closed in 1969, Hunter absorbed it to create the Hunter-Bellevue School of Nursing, now located at the college’s Brookdale Health Science Center at 425 East 25th Street in Manhattan, near Bellevue Hospital. The school’s programs combine liberal and professional education with a humanistic and comprehensive approach to health care.
