Since its inception, Crouse Hospital College of Nursing has remained dedicated to providing students with the most advanced nursing education. Throughout its long and esteemed history, Crouse Hospital School of Nursing has overcome change. Yet, one thing has remained the same: a tradition of excellence.

Crouse Hospital, as it is currently configured, came into existence in 1968 through the merger of Crouse Irving Hospital and Syracuse Memorial Hospital. Prior to this establishment of Crouse Irving Memorial Hospital, the two separate hospitals each had their own respective schools of nursing.


In 1991, the Marley Education Center, which currently houses the school of nursing, opened. The school was renamed Crouse Hospital School of Nursing in 1997 to reflect the name change of the hospital. In 2011, the Crouse Hospital School of Nursing became a College of Nursing. Through the years, the school has graduated more than 5,000 professional nurses who have gone on to pursue successful nursing careers across the country.
