Chronology of Events

Date Event
1941 Rutgers University Colleges in Newark and Camden offered courses to professional nurses in the field of public health.
1946 Rutgers absorbed the University of Newark, renaming it the Newark College of Arts and Sciences. The University of Newark had established a Division of Nursing in 1943 that offered a one-semester pre-clinical program.
1947 Jurisdiction of pre-clinical nursing courses was placed in University Extension.
1949 The pre-clinical program was extended to two semesters.
1951 As a result of lobbying by the New Jersey Board of Nursing, the New Jersey State Nurses' Association and the New Jersey League for Nursing, $120,000 in state Civil Defense funds was granted for the development of the following nursing programs at Rutgers:
1. a four-year baccalaureate program that did not require previous nursing experience, the first of its kind in the state;
2. a two-year experimental program, the first of its kind in the nation (three-year programs were the norm);
3. a baccalaureate program for registered graduate nurses; and
4. a pre-clinical Preparation to Nursing program for students enrolled in hospital schools of nursing.
To administer the new programs, the University created the Division of Nursing Education, as one of four divisions of the Newark College of Arts and Sciences, moving it from the Division of Natural Sciences. Ella V. Stonsby, a faculty member since 1946, was named director of the Division.
1952 In July, the first six students were admitted to the two-year experimental program. In September, the first ten students were admitted to the four-year baccalaureate degree program.
1953 The Division of Nursing Education became the School of Nursing.
1954 The New York State Examining Board approved registration of the two-year experimental program as an Associate Degree program. Five students graduated in October with the A.S. degree, the first two-year degree awarded by Rutgers.
1955 The School of Nursing received accreditation for its programs from the National League for Nursing; its two-year program was the first in the country to receive full accreditation.
Faculty increased from three full and one part-time member to 24 full-time members.
1956 The School of Nursing became the College of Nursing.
The eight-year design of nursing education was implemented, a "career ladder" of four two-year blocks. All students were admitted into the associate degree program, to continue into the baccalaureate, masters and doctorate programs, with the option of exiting at the two-year interval that fulfilled their career goals.
The Mental Health Institute of the U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare awarded a $260,000 grant to implement a graduate program in psychiatric nursing, the first of its kind in the nation.
The pre-clinical program was dropped.
1957 The College of Nursing Department of Student Life and the Alumni Association were formed.
Because of growing space needs, faculty offices and some classrooms moved from 40 Rector Street to 18 James Street (one of the Ballantine mansions) in Newark.
1959 Faculty agreed to continue the eight-year design of nursing education for a trial period of five years (through 1963/64). The Graduate Courses of Study Committee began developing a proposal for a nursing Ph.D. program to complete the final two years of the program.
The first dormitory housing (for 15 students) was established in a renovated building at 21 and 25 James Street, Newark.
1961 Additional housing was provided for 10 students at 381 Broad Street in Newark (the Colonnade Park apartments).
1962 Housing at James Street was ended, and all resident students were placed in dormitories at 351-381 Broad Street.
1963 Ella V. Stonsby stepped down as Dean.
The eight-year design of nursing education was discontinued. In September, the last class was admitted to the Associate Degree program.
1964 L. Bernice Chapman was named the second dean of the Rutgers College of Nursing.
A generic baccalaureate program was instituted, and the first students were admitted.
The Continuing Education Program for Nurse Practitioners was established.
1967 Offices and faculty moved to 87-91 Halsey Street, Newark.
1972 The Pediatric Nurse Practitioner Program (the first joint Rutgers College of Nursing/College of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey program) was established. This was the first post-baccalaureate primary health care program for nurses offered in New Jersey.
1973 Dean L. Bernice Chapman resigned.
1974 Eleanor Gray Knudson was appointed Dean.
The Graduate Program in Nursing was expanded to include the clinical specialties of parent-child, medical/surgical and community health nursing.
A new curriculum was instituted.
The College of Nursing moved to 392 High Street in Newark.
1976 Dean Eleanor Gray Knudson resigned.
A Masters Program in Advanced Psychiatric Nursing was offered on the New Brunswick campus.
1977 Beverly H. Bowns was appointed dean.
1979 New departments were created: Primary Care Nursing, Acute Care Nursing and Chronicity Nursing. Learning modules were developed as a semi-independent study teaching tool for registered nurse baccalaureates.
1980 A registered nurse baccalaureate program was established on the New Brunswick campus.
1981 Beverly H. Bowns resigned as dean, but remained with the College as a faculty member.
Dorothy DeMaio was named dean.
1988 On November 11, the Ph.D. program in nursing was approved by the Rutgers Board of Governors.
1989 On March 17, the Ph.D. program in nursing, the first in New Jersey, was approved by the New Jersey Board of Higher Education.
1990 The graduate program in nursing was extended to the Camden campus.

Scope and Content Note

The records of the College of Nursing, Dean's Office date from 1952 to 1994 and total 23.3 cubic feet. The bulk of the collection dates from the 1980s, during Dorothy DeMaio's tenure as dean. Records document the philosophy and evolution of nursing degree programs and curriculum, the development of a nursing doctoral program, the accreditation process, faculty and staff relations, faculty tenure review, and women in education.

Collection includes correspondence, memos, by-laws, minutes, course materials, reports, budgets, newspaper clippings, resumes, speeches, grant applications, and faculty evaluations. The formation and earliest years of the school are documented in the Accreditation Files and Historical Background series, although additional materials from the 1950s can be found throughout the collection. Curriculum and faculty are well documented, as are the accreditation and grant application processes.

Topics of special interest in the collection include the development of the nursing Ph.D. program, the first in New Jersey (Programs of Study) and the controversy over the University of Medicine and Dentistry's proposed Masters in Nursing program. UMDNJ's proposal was opposed by CN and other organizations that claimed the program would duplicate existing nursing programs during a nursing student shortage. Also of interest are files on the Educational Opportunity Fund in the Dean's Office Subject Files; the EOF was a special entry program for students unable to meet the normal financial and academic requirements for admission into the CN nursing programs.

Separated Material

Some materials from the Dean's Office Subject Files were transferred to other series. Department files, Committee files and "Old Course Outlines" were transferred to the Departments, Committees, and Programs of Study series. Departmental and Committee minutes and annual reports were retained in the Dean's Office Subject Files, however, as they were grouped by year as single units. Dean's Correspondence and "cc:" files were integrated into the Dean's Office Chronological Files.

One box of "miscellaneous" folders were filed as follows: R.A. Meeting minutes to Faculty meeting minutes; and Office Procedures Manual, General Information, and "Learning Experiences in Nursing and Allied Fields Taught in the First Six Years of the Eight Year Design" narrative report to Dean's Office Subject Files.

Duplicates were removed wherever possible. Rutgers publications, including catalogues, annual reports, newsletters, and commencement materials were transferred to pre-existing record groups in the University Archives. Carbon copies of confidential personnel records in Faculty files were removed. Purchase orders and receipts detailing grant fund expenditures for books, supplies, telephone calls, conference fees, etc. were removed; detailed summary reports of expenditures were retained, however.

Items Removed from the Collection:

For transfer to other record groups:

Box 31: Rutgers College of Nursing convocation materials, student handbooks, bulletins, program guides
Box 34: Rutgers College of Nursing and Graduate Program Annual Reports
Box 36: Rutgers College of Nursing Annual Reports, other published materials
Box 38: Rutgers College of Nursing Faculty and Student handbooks, other published materials
