Biographical History

Brigham Young University's School of Nursing became the College of Nursing in 1958. Since then, the significant increase in the number of LDS faculty with a Master's degree led to the beginning of many new changes for the college. For the first time since the college's organization, it had a dean who was a member of the Church with the qualifications required by the Collegiate Board of Review of the National League of Nursing. The college went on and developed an aututorial laboratory and carried out a major curriculum revision. The idea of an associate degree in nursing began to exert itself in the 1950's and developed rapidly in the Western United States. Health care groups soon looked to associate degree programs as one important way of relieving the shortages of nurses in Utah. In September 1963, an associate degree program was established. Many neighboring hospitals and medical facilities are presently being used for the training of BYU nursing students. A humanistic approach makes it possible to develop qualities which are essential for the practice of nursing.
