Organizational History

A Division of Nursing was created in 1962 and received full State Board of Nursing Accreditation in 1966. The program also graduated its first class with five students in 1966. In 1967 Nursing became one of seven schools at Colorado State College (later the University of Northern Colorado). A Master’s of Science in Nursing Education was added in 1979. In 1981 it evolved into the School of Nursing and Gerontology. In 1990 the name changed to the College of Health and Human Sciences. In 2005 it was transferred to the College of Natural and Health Sciences.
