  • Kathleen Scoble Joins Baystate Board

    Dean Scoble First Nurse on Baystate Board

    Dean Kathleen Scoble is the first nurse to serve on the board of one of the largest health systems in New England.

The Elms College Division of Nursing was founded in 1978 enrolling its first class of baccalaureate under the direction of Sr. Nora Harrington, an academic dean and Sister of St. Joseph, who saw a need in the community for professional nurses. From this beginning, the ethos of the Sisters of St. Joseph became the bedrock on which the Nursing program stands, which is… To always look to see where the needs of the community are, the needs of society, and of the world and then evolve to meet those needs… be it through educational programming or service… all the while working to better the entire community.
