In 1912, Marquette University acquired the Trinity Hospital Training School for Nursing and the nurses' residence. Soon after that acquisition, the nursing school became a division of higher education at Marquette and graduated 18 nursing students. At that time, Marquette was the only university in Wisconsin to offer a three-year nursing certificate.

In 1936, the School of Nursing became a constituent college of Marquette University with a four-year collegiate program designed by the college's first dean, Dr. Berenice Beck.

When you're a nurse you know that every day you will touch a life or a life will touch yours.
