Acquisition Information: Donated by the JMU Nursing Department in November 2013 after Erica Lewis, then Assistant Professor in the Department of Nursing, found several boxes labeled "nursing history" in the basement in a storage room near her office. Another portion of the collection was transferred to Special Collections in December 2016 by Michele Dombrowski, Outreach Coordinator in the School of Nursing. In August 2018, an addition was transferred consisting of multiple Nursing Student Association scrapbooks, loose photos, and records.
Processing Information: One box of 2006-2010 student records from the 2013 acquisition was returned to the donor due to FERPA laws. Several papers from the 2016 nad 2018 acquisition were discarded due to excessive Social Security Numbers and medical records. These papers included: Lists from fall 1992, fall 1993, 1994, 1996-1998 that listed nursing juniors and seniors with their contact information and academic advisors. Papers found containing student education records were discarded. In addition, duplicate copies of The Breeze and JMU News containing articles relating to the Department of Nursing in the 1980s and 1990s, already held by Special Collections, were discarded. Several class photos that were received in frames were unframed and the frames were discarded.

Bio/Historical Note:

Prior to the development of a nursing program, Madison College offered pre-nursing courses to students who then transferred to other baccalaureate nursing programs. Interest in developing a full baccalaureate degree program began to increase in the 1960s, when a national trend of hospital nursing school closures came to Harrisonburg when the Rockingham Memorial Hospital (RMH) School of Nursing officially closed in 1970.

In May 1972, Madison College President, Dr. Ronald E. Carrier, submitted a proposal to the State Council of Higher Education in Virginia (SCHEV) to develop a nursing program at the College. It was not until 1979 that SCHEV granted permission to activate the program. Dr. Marcia Dake was appointed the fourth director, later dean, of Nursing Education in July 1979 and served in this role until 1988. The first students entered the program in the fall of 1980 and 21 of these students made up the first graduating class in spring 1982.

In fall 1982, the Department of Nursing received full accreditation from the National League for Nursing (NLN). After reorganization within the university, the department joined the new College of Health and Human Development in 1988, later merging with the College of Health and Behavioral Studies in 1994. Opting for new accreditation at the end of the 1990s, the department was granted full accreditation by the newly formed Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) in April 1999. In collaboration with Eastern Mennonite University's Nursing Program, the department was granted the Pi Mu at-large chapter of Sigma Theta Tau, International (STTI) Nursing Honor Society in 2000.

Expanding on the nursing program, the department implemented a new Master of Science degree with nurse practitioner and nurse educator concentrations in 2004, with the first cohort graduating in 2006. The department received full 10-year reaccreditation of all programs from the CCNE in 2009. In 2010, SCHEV granted approval for the development of a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program at JMU. In 2013, the Department of Nursing implemented online learning for the DNP and RN-BSN programs. The department also operates a Chronic Illness minor open to all undergraduate students.

Scope and Content:

The JMU Nursing Department Records, 1951-2015 (bulk 1972-2001), consists of 20 boxes documenting the creation and growth of nursing at JMU. This collection contains scrapbooks, documents, letters, studies, and photographs that helped spark the interest for a nursing program at Madison College in 1951. Proposals for new curriculums, order forms for uniforms, photographs of graduating classes and faculty, newspaper and magazine articles discussing student nurses, are all included within the collection. Other materials include faculty business minutes, grants for training and special projects, budget documents, correspondence between staff and students (letters and emails), nursing program policies, and information on pinning ceremonies held by the department. Please note that some folders are restricted and are marked in the inventory below. These folders are restricted due to individual student records.

: Grants, 1972-1981

Arranged alphabetically.

Series 2: Grants, 1972-1981, includes grants that were awarded to the nursing program, including a capitation grant, a Department of Health, Education, and Welfare (DHEW) grant; a Health, Education, and Welfare (HEW) grant; a special project grant; and various training grants. Grant application forms and approval forms are also included. The Capitation Grant, given to the program for the years 1980-1982, assisted with training nurses. In 1977, the Department of Nursing wrote a final progress report to DHEW asking them for approval to develop a baccalaureate nursing program at Madison College in order to replace the discontinued RMH program. The remaining grants in this series relate to the development of the nursing school and obtaining funding for the program. Along with grants and proposals, this series also includes miscellaneous letters of correspondence between Madison College faculty and employees of departments that distributed funding.

Individual class photos of every graduating nursing student can be found in years 1993-1996, 1998-2000.

Arranged chronologically.

Series 5: Scrapbooks, 1982-2007 (bulk 2000-2007) contains eight scrapbooks relating to the Nursing Department.

The majority of scrapbooks highlight academic years from 2000-2007 through the Nursing Student Association (NSA), JMU's chapter of the National Student Nurses' Association, that promotes the professional and personal development of student nurses'. The NSA scrapbooks document service and social activities that the chapter participated in during the year. The Virginia Nursing Student Association holds scrapbook competitions for Virginia NSA chapters. Some activities documented in the scrapbooks include: Relay for Life, Senior Prom, recruitment, fundraising, and holidays.
