HAMPTON, Va. — The Hampton University School of Nursing has prepared qualified nurses to serve humanity for more than one century.

The school was founded in 1891, and proudly holds the distinction of being the oldest continuous baccalaureate nursing program in the commonwealth of Virginia.  The program is designed to meet almost every student's needs, by offering traditional and accelerated baccalaureate completion, master's degrees in the roles of nurse practitioner, administrator, and educator, and a doctoral degree in family and family related nursing research or nursing education.

Following a recent site visit from the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), the HU School of Nursing has received full accreditation for the next 10 years, through 2026. The Virginia Board of Nursing also determined that HU School of Nursing’s main campus pass rate is at 81% and the Virginia Beach campus pass rate is 100%.

The HU School of Nursing will celebrate 125 years of the program at their pinning ceremony, during the May 2017 graduation weekend. During that celebration the archives of Dr. Mary Elizabeth Carnegie, HU School of Nursing’s first baccalaureate program director, will be on display in the Hampton University Museum.
 
“We are very proud of our heritage and will continue to uphold the Standard of Excellence as we strive towards becoming the number one producer of multicultural nurses with advanced degrees in the United States,” said Dr. Shevellanie Lott, HU School of Nursing Dean. “Our administration and faculty are committed to ensuring the program continues for another 125 years.”
