• 1920: A Look Back at the School of Nursing (SON) 100 Years Ago

      Wink, Tara (2020-10-09)
      The School of Nursing was founded in 1889 in the University of Maryland University Hospital. The school was under the leadership of a superintendent of nurses and was part of the School of Medicine. When the Maryland State College of Agriculture (College Park) and the University of Maryland (Baltimore) merged in 1920, the School of Nursing became its own entity but remained under the administrative control of the University Hospital. This post outlines the cost of attendance, matriculation requirements, and the makeup of the student and faculty body in the 1920-21 academic year.
