School Notes

  • Crouse Irving Hospital, destined to merge with Syracuse Memorial, was founded by a group of physicians and investors under the leadership of Dr. William L. Wallace in 1912. The building was designed so that if the hospital venture was not successful, the building could be used as a hotel. However, the hospital was needed to care for the growing city population and was efficiently and successfully managed. In 1913, the Crouse Irving Hospital School of Nursing was founded. In June 1996, a new name and updated graphic identity were announced, changing Crouse Irving Memorial Hospital to Crouse Hospital. The Crouse Hospital School of Nursing laboratory is very spacious with a six bed practice area and a self contained classroom. The equipment and supplies are modern and realistic so that students can familiarize themselves with nursing procedures, techniques and equipment. The lab is staffed by clinically expert nursing faculty who offer supportive guidance to the students in a learning environment. All Crouse Hospital nursing students enjoy privileges at the SUNY Upstate Medical University Campus Activities Building, a hub of student recreational activity for the SUNY and Crouse campuses. Facilities include a gym, pool, sauna, exercise equipment, tennis courts, squash courts, pool tables, pinball machines, TV lounge, bookstore and coffee shops Crouse Hospital School of Nursing is registered by the New York State Education Department, which is the administrative arm of the Board of Regents. This Board is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as a national accrediting body for nursing education programs.
