Historical Abstract:The Northeastern University (NU) College of Nursing opened in 1964 with two programs: a three-year cooperative associate degree program and a five-year cooperative bachelor's degree program. The program was supported by Massachusetts General, Beth Israel, and Children's hospitals. The college's associate degree program was accredited in 1968 and the bachelor's degree program in 1972. Answering the demand for continuing education opportunities, the College of Nursing established a Licensed Practical Nurse-Associate Degree Program in 1969 with federal funding from a three-year training grant. The Nurse Practitioner Program was established in 1972 when the college undertook administration of the program at Bunker Hill Health Center, but was terminated in 1982 because of discontinued federal support. In 1979, the College phased out its associate degree program. In January 1989, the graduate nursing program at Boston University was transferred to NU. In 1997, the College of Nursing merged with the Bouvé College of Health Sciences and became the School of Nursing.
