Past names of Lutheran School of Nursing were the Lutheran Medical Center School of Nursing, the Lutheran Hospital School of Nursing, and originally, the Lutheran Hospital Training School for Nurses, which was founded by Louise Krauss-Ament in 1898. Lutheran Hospital was founded in 1858, and the Alumni Association was founded in 1905.
Recently our Alumni President spoke with the LSN Director and she shared the following information.
The school will meet with the State Board of Nursing on December 10th to discuss concerns the Board had, especially with the financial solvency of the school and with educational professional development.
Currently, the school has 40 students enrolled and continues, at this time, to have a moratorium on admitting new students. That should change after December 10th if the Board of Nursing lifts the moratorium.
There is a new buyer for Alexian Hospital and the school. This buyer (SA Acquisition) is expected to close on the properties on Oct. 1st.
Currently, the Lutheran School of Nursing can be reached on the Internet at www.nursingschoollmc.com or at 3547 S. Jefferson Ave., St. Louis, MO 63118 (314/577-5850).
