About CNH

Welcome to the Center for Nursing History!

Endowed by the Bellevue Alumnae Association in 2000, the CNH is dedicated to preserving the magnificent history of nursing in New York State.

Mission Statement

The mission of the CNH is to acquire, preserve, and make available for research and public dissemination the history of nursing in New York State.  We will accomplish our mission by accommodating researchers coming to the CNH’s archive, through exhibits (both at the Center for Nursing and in the community), journal articles, and public programs.
