History of the College of Nursing

In a blaze of excellence

It was in the hustle and bustle of the late 1960s that the UERMMMC College of Nursing was founded. The College owes its beginnings to the pioneers of the then newly established medical center as well as to prominent benefactors.

Though the groundwork for the College began as early as October 1958, students were admitted only in the following year. This is because the foundations of what is to be a premier institution had to be carefully laid out.

The initial step was in many ways a mighty challenge for the forerunners of the College. They were aware that their exploits and feats would become the benchmark with which their successors will build the next years of the College’s acclaimed history.
