From the Archives: School of Nursing, Circa 1945

During the 1940s, the Presbyterian Hospital School of Nursing required student nurses to take 48 hours of “nutrition cookery” in their first year of school. Classes took place in the dietetic kitchens of Presbyterian Hospital — now Rush University Medical Center.
