Mission Belles Alumni

The Mission Belles are the former students and graduates of the Memorial Mission Hospital’s School of Nursing. From 1893 until 1971 Mission Hospital operated a hospital-based nursing school that eventually became the Memorial Mission Hospital School of Nursing.

Ask any of the Mission Belles who attended, and they will tell you that times and training have changed dramatically since those years. Being together for three years of training, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, created a sense of community for nurses and faculty that would be hard to duplicate today. These nurses are proud to say their education was exceptional and they want to keep their fond memories alive by using them in a way that will help others.
