Last Look

Today’s nurses have come a long way from wearing white uniforms and caps. While a College of Nursing existed at UH from 1948 until 1956—it closed because of mounting financial and administrative challenges. Today’s UH College of Nursing, established in 2015, teaches the next generation of highly educated professionals to make critical assessments and autonomous decisions, preparing them to become clinical nursing experts, nurse practitioners, administrators of health care, nursing faculty and nurse researchers.
