Celebrating 50 Years of Nursing Education

50 Years of Nursing Badge

 

For half a century, Troy University has continued to educate, mold and empower nursing professionals through its Bachelor of Science in Nursing program. Beginning with a resolution for the establishment of a School of Nursing at Troy University, the program was proposed and unanimously passed by the Alabama Legislature in 1969. As a result, the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program began admitting students on the Troy Campus for the first time in 1969 and graduated its first class in 1973. Since its first graduating class, TROY’s School of Nursing has continued to produce skillful graduates who save lives on a daily basis.

The University’s BSN program has been continuously accredited by the National League for Nursing, the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission, or the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing since 1974, and its success has helped pave the way for TROY’s School of Nursing to continue to add academic programs through the years. Today, the School of Nursing provides students with opportunities to earn their associate, bachelor’s and master’s in nursing and their Doctor of Nursing Practice. 

Join us this year as we celebrate the legacy of our program! 

Special Events

In order to celebrate this 50th year milestone, the School of Nursing has a variety of activities planned during the fall semester.

The Troy University School of Nursing wishes to welcome its newest sim baby boy, Jack Hawkins III, fondly referred to as “Trey”. The School of Nursing hosted a gender/name reveal as part of its 50th celebration. We welcomed students, faculty, administrators, and the community for an open house and debut of the new simulation lab space and new sim mom equipment.
