Celebrate the UW School of Nursing’s centennial! In 1918, public health in Washington State was in crisis because of a worldwide flu epidemic. The Washington TB Association asked the UW to offer public health courses for registered nurses to help alleviate the crisis. These courses became the first public health education courses in the Northwest to include fieldwork and represented the beginning of nursing education at UW.
