A new hospital building opened in 1926, as did the Vincent Hall nursing school dormitory a couple of years later. An estimated 20,000 nurses would live there through the years. 1905 Culture Cincinnati Children’s establishes a nursing school to instruct students in “an understanding of child behavior, family life, and the care of sick and convalescent children.” Education opens doors that kids can run through.
