Call Number:A18

Scope and Content Note

The records of the College of Nursing reflect the activities of faculty, staff, and students in the graduate and undergraduate nursing programs at Northeastern. Materials include correspondence, meeting minutes, agendas, reports, accreditation files, theses, viewbooks, and two nurse's uniforms. Annual reports and accreditation materials, primarily in the Subject Files series, document the work of the College towards meeting standards for nursing education from state and national bodies, including the National League for Nursing and the American Nurses' Association.

The Committee Records and Program Records series document the work of faculty and students in building and maintaining the educational programs of the College, including class notes, syllabi, and course outlines. Also included are some proposals for new programs, primarily at the graduate level to meet the needs of RNs requiring further professional education, nurses without Bachelor of Science degrees but with comparable professional experience, and the creation of Northeastern's unique dual degree in nursing and business administration. Also of note are theses from the Boston University College of Nursing program which merged with the Northeastern nursing program in the late 1980s.
