Memorial Mission School of Nursing Alumni
Honoring the Memorial Mission School of Nursing (1893 - 1971)

“Thus ended our three years of nursing education. They were years we will hold dear in our hearts...the friends we acquired, the facts we learned, the knowledge we accepted, the maturity into which we grew.”

~ Mission Belles Class of 1969 Yearbook

The Mission Belles would like to welcome you home!

The Mission Belles are the former students and graduates of the Memorial Mission Hospital’s School of Nursing. From 1893 until 1971, Mission Hospitals 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. 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 and use them in a way that will help others.

If you are a graduate or former student, please contact us to let us know how you are doing (see below information on how to do so). If you know someone who is a graduate, please let them know about us.
