50 Years of Graceland Nursing

A History of Innovation. A Present of Leadership. A Future of Excellence.

Graceland University’s history as an institution for educating nurses dates back more than 50 years. Originally a diploma program that was a partnership with the Independence Sanitarium and Hospital, Graceland’s nursing program has been a leader for decades. 1968 – 69 marked the first cohort of students in the baccalaureate program and, 50 years later, the nursing program continues to produce graduates who are empathetic, committed to patient care and among the most respected in the profession.
