School of Nursing hosts open house
The School of Nursing continued its centennial celebration with an open house held November 1. Faculty from across Loma Linda’s campus, students, administrators, and other institutions were invited to tour the School.
“This was an invitation to members and officials of the communities surrounding our School as well as our University family to become better acquainted with School of Nursing faculty and our School facility,” says Marcia Dunbar, MS, RN, assistant professor of nursing, and coordinator of School of Nursing centennial events.
Richard Schaefer, campus historian for Loma Linda University, gave a presentation on the history of Loma Linda, focusing specifically on School of Nursing history. Students and faculty led guided tours of West Hall, and several displays were set up featuring international outreach and research.
Also highlighted was a special display titled “Century of Uniforms,” which featured vintage SN uniforms from the past 100 years. A brunch was also provided for the guests.
The open house caps a year of celebrating 100 years of nursing education and excellence at the School of Nursing.
