Emory University School of Nursing was founded in 1905, at the Wesley Memorial Hospital Training School for Nurses in Atlanta, GA. Initially school was a training school in a 50-bed hospital Wesley Memorial Hospital Training School for Nurses. Today, the school has reached a milestone and graduates more than 200 baccalaureate, master, and doctoral students each year and niches the ranking position among the top 10 private U.S. schools of nursing.
The first name change of the school was implemented in 1932, when the name changed to the Emory University Hospital School of Nursing, but after the school was separated from the hospital in 1944, the school carried out the name change and started knowing as Emory University School of Nursing and became an independent school of the university, led by Dean Julia Miller. The baccalaureate and graduate programs were introduced during this time only.
