A Framework for the Nursing Curriculum at St. Francis Xavier University

M. Simone Roach


Nursing education began at St. Francis Xavier University in September, 1926, with the purpose, as quoted from the university calendar of that year, "to afford a broader education than is given by a School of Nursing alone, and to equip nurses who desire to fit themselves for teaching and supervision in Schools of Nursing and for public health nursing service." It is interesting to note that the nursing "entity" at the university at the time was called the Department of Nursing and Health. The School of Nursing referred to was the diploma program at St. Martha's School of Nursing. However, as the program developed, the degree was offered to graduates of other diploma schools.
