November 1st marks the 125th anniversary of Good Samaritan College of Nursing and Health Science. In 1896, the Good Samaritan Hospital School of Nursing two-year program was started by the Sisters of Charity. Eight students started in the program and the curriculum included surgery, bacteriology, massage, bandaging and nursing ethics. Today, the college offers degrees in three programs: Associate of Applied Science in Nursing (AASN); Associate of Science in Health Science (ASHS); Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN to BSN), as well as certificate programs for medical assisting and pharmacy technician. Our original motto, “go where you are needed” is still true today, as our students and graduates compassionately care for our community where they are needed, 125 years later.
Please join us for our ribbon cutting ceremony on Monday, November 1st at 11:30 am to celebrate 125 years, our recently renovated college, new historical timeline on the 8th floor walls, and our new display cabinets showcasing our artifacts and history.
