St. Xavier School Nursing Cap Added to Collection

St. Xavier School Nursing

A cap from the St. Xavier School Nursing on display at the Museum of Nursing History.

St. Xavier School of Nursing was founded in 1935. The college integrated with the Mercy Hospital and launched the first BSN program in Illinois. This joining together enabled the melding of general education with hospital-based lab courses and clinical practice.  We congratulate the School of Nursing on the 80 year anniversary of its founding!

We also wish to thank the donor of the St. Xavier School of Nursing cap for their generosity.
