Administrative History

Administrative History: Christ's Hospital School of Nursing was established in Topeka, Kansas, by Bishop and Mrs. Thomas Vail of the Episcopal Church in 1892. It was the first training school for nurses in the State of Kansas. The Christ's Hospital School of Nursing Alumni Association was established on September 30, 1904. The association had several objectives: to help and improve professional work and for promotion of good fellowship among graduates, to support the advancement of interests of the Christ's Hospital School of Nursing, and to collaborate with several organizations for the promotion of the professional and education advancement of nursing. Christ's Hospital, located between 8th and 10th Avenues west of Washburn Avenue, opened to patients in 1884 in Topeka, Kansas. After merging with Stormont Hospital in 1949, the facility became known as Stormont-Vail for the founders of each hospital.
