The School of Nursing is one of the oldest schools of nursing in the US.
Although the School of Nursing offers bachelors degrees, and is therefore technically an undergraduate school, unlike nursing schools at Penn and Georgetown, you can't enter Columbia's school out of High School - you have to have already graduated from a 4 year college program.
Founded in 1892 as Presbyterian Hospital School of Nursing, the School of Nursing became part of Columbia University in 1937 and began offering the baccalaureate degree. It is one of the oldest schools of nursing in the US . In 1956, it became the first nursing program in the country to award a master's degree in a clinical nursing specialty. In 1999, the School granted its first doctoral degree. More than 9,000 nurses have graduated since the School opened. The school is located at the Columbia University Medical Center in Washington Heights.
