Crouse School of Nursing is located in the heart of Central New York. The history of the school starts with the establishment of Crouse Hospital, which was established in 1968 through the merger of Crouse Irving Hospital and Syracuse Memorial Hospital. Prior to the merger, both hospitals had their own separate schools of nursing.

In 1991, the Marley Education Center, where the school of nursing is located was opened and in 1997 the school was renamed as Crouse Hospital School of Nursing, which also reflects the change of name of the hospital. Over the years, over 5000 nurses have been graduated from the school and pursuing their successful professional career.
