St. Luke's College of Health Sciences

Saint Luke's College of Health Sciences is a nursing school associated with Saint Luke's Health System in Kansas City, Missouri that has graduated 3,500 nurses since its founding in 1903 in its Bachelor of Science in nursing program.


The school traces its history to All Saints Hospital at 10th and Campbell Streets in Kansas City that opened in 1885 with a nursing school opening in 1887. Saint Luke's Hospital (Kansas City, Missouri) took over the hospital in 1903 and established the School of Nursing. The first graduate of the program was in 1906.[1]

In the 1920s St. Luke's moved to its present location. The library moved to the Helen F. Spencer Center for Education in 1972 and the student residence moved to 4545 Washington in 1987.[1]

In 1991, the Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree program was launched.[1]

In 2010, Dean L. Hubbard became the interim president and was named president in March 2011.[2]
