School of Nursing

The St. Joseph School of Nursing opened in 1908, graduated its first class in 1910 and continues to be a department of the hospital today. Average enrollment is approximately 120 students and 60% of graduates are hired by St. Joseph Hospital.

The school leverages its small class sizes to provide individualized attention and give each student the knowledge and training they’ll need to become a professional nurse.
