The Mennonite School of Nursing in Beatrice, Nebraska, was founded at the Mennonite Deaconess Home and Hospital at Beatrice in 1911 shortly after the hospital was opened, and continued until 1929. The course of study was three years and included courses which led to high school graduation and upon graduation from the School of Nursing eligibility for registration. Special courses in Bible, ethics, and the deaconesswork were given. The school gave training to 27 girls; of these a number became ordained deaconesses and devoted their lives to the care of the sick. The school was under the leadership of Sister Marie Wedel, Sister Elise Hirschler, Sister Sarah Rempel, Sister Magdalene Wiebe, and Herman Wiebe. In 1941-1947 a two-year course in practical community nursing was offered under the leadership of Mrs. Ursula Penner Frantz.
