Founded in 1909, we are three-year, fully accredited diploma program which has maintained a 114-year tradition of educational excellence. Our graduates are respected for their comprehensive base of theoretical knowledge and clinical expertise.

Our direct link to Graham Health Systems enables us to quickly recognize, accept, and adapt to changes in the healthcare delivery system. The curriculum at Graham Hospital School of Nursing is continually reviewed and revised when necessary to meet the demands of ongoing healthcare changes. The school has a long history of partnership utilizing local and surrounding community healthcare agencies to provide diverse clinical sites and intense clinical experiences for our students.

A low student-to-faculty ratio promotes tailored attention and development of working relationships with all instructors and staff. We offer a fully equipped computer lab that allows student access around the clock. The school offers several simulation laboratories that include adult male and female, birthing mother/neonate, and pediatric mannequins. Graham offers a large skills lab that is fully stocked with the necessary equipment to engage students in active learning. Our program offers an on-site tutor to help with the challenges that students face from time to time.

Congratulations on choosing nursing as an exciting and challenging career, we hope that you will join our program to provide nursing excellence to the communities and populations we serve!
