BYU College of Nursing

The BYU College of Nursing is one of the 16 colleges that make up Brigham Young University. It currently has over 400 students.

It began as the BYU School of Nursing in the fall of 1952 offering a bachelor's degree in nursing with Vivian Hansen as the first dean. At some point in the 1950s it was changed from being designated a school to being designated a college.

In 1963 an associate degree program was established but this was put under the auspices of BYU's College of Industrial and Technical Education because there was at the time a view in some sectors of the academic nursing community that associate degree programs should not coexist with bachelor's degree programs. In 1973 the associate degree program was moved into the College of Nursing and transfer between the two programs was made easier.
