History

Two hospitals in Jacksonville - Holy Cross and Passavant Area Memorial Hospital - offered schools of nursing beginning in the early 1900s. Late in the 1920s and early 1930s, Passavant and MacMurray offered a combined degree program until after the second world war. In 1975 MacMurray began offering classes designed for the nursing students at Passavant's School of Nursing. By this times Holy Cross Hospital had closed. In 1975, the National League for Nursing and the American Nurses' Association recommended moving nursing education to baccalaureate programs at institutions of higher education. Passavant and MacMurray reached an agreement to move all nursing education to MacMurray but until MacMurray could be accredited, the School of Nursing at Passavant would continue. In 1979 after the Committee of Nurse Examiners of the State of Illinois fully approved of MacMurray's curriculum, eight students enrolled in MacMurray's nursing program. Clinical courses began in 1981.
