School of Nursing
Tradition. Personalized Teaching. Technology & Clinical Experience.
A century of excellence ...
Aria Health School of Nursing continues to distinguish itself, building on its roots and history as Frankford Hospital School of Nursing – and poised now to grow across another hundred years of success in providing quality academics and preparation in the field of nursing. In the fall of 1904, a training school for nurses was established in Northeast Philadelphia, just a block away from Aria Health - Frankford Campus, which had been founded in 1903. Under the direction of Anna C. Garrett, who was also Aria Health - Frankford Campus's first superintendent, the Frankford Hospital School of Nursing set forth to provide exceptional education to students interested in pursuing the nursing profession.
The Frankford Hospital School of Nursing developed into a distinguished co-educational institution, and over a century-plus provided more than 2,500 students with comprehensive learning experiences in professional nursing. In 2004, Aria Health School of Nursing, under its former name of The Frankford Hospital School of Nursing, celebrated its 100-year anniversary. It continues to carry on the long tradition of educating caring and responsible nurses who will become a vital part of the healthcare community and the community in which they live. In April of 2012, Aria Health School of Nursing relocated to the Aria Corporate Center at Neshaminy Interplex in Trevose, PA. The new facility provides our students with a professional setting in which to pursue their studies. Year after year, Aria Health School of Nursing graduates are just as unanimously satisfied with their education as their employers are with their performance.
