This original 8in. by 10in. photograph of the class of 1960 was taken on June the 9th. for the newspaper. The caption from the paper is on the back reads "NATIONS LARGEST NURSING CLASS--And their formation indicates the school from which 159 nurses will graduate Saturday--the University of Michigan. The U-M school of nursing also is the nation's biggest, with a four-year program leading to a bachelor of science degree in nursing. Most of the nursing graduates (above) are posing together for the last time."
From the school's website: Since 1893, when the first six students graduated from the University Hospital program, the University of Michigan School of Nursing has been visionary in its research agenda and responsive to the health needs of the residents of Michigan and the nation. By 1941, the School of Nursing was fully established as a health sciences academic unit of the University. Today, the School consistently ranks among the top five schools of nursing in the United States providing national and international leadership in research, education and service. Improved nursing practice has been the hallmark of the University of Michigan School of Nursing since the first six students were admitted to the program in 1891. Patient and client care, combined with discovery from learning and research, have distinguished the School's progress to our current placement among the top five schools of nursing in any recognized ranking.
