Historical Note

Nursing courses have been offered at Michigan State University since 1925 when a program with the School of Home Economics and Sparrow Hospital was created. Students received a B.S. degree in Home Economics and a diploma in nursing. In 1950, the Department of Nursing Education was created as part of the Division of Biological Sciences in the College of Arts and Science. In 1957, reorganization of the university resulted in the department becoming the School of Nursing. In 1980, the school became the College of Nursing.
