The Frontier Nursing University began as the Frontier Nursing Service.

Would give 0 stars if I could. This program is so far from the vision and mission of Mary Breckinridge. They only exploit and take from the region that she came to help. They say they’re moving because Hyden is difficult to travel to. The whole purpose of Mary Breckinridge’s mission was to bring healthcare to hard to reach areas. Maybe the “hardship” of coming an hour down the interstate and 40 minutes on a parkway will instill Mary Breckinridge’s mission in students more than a piece of stained glass hanging in Versailles.
The picture showing when Frontier Nursing Service (FNS) was established needs to let people know where FNS was established. It looks like it was established in Versailles, KY, it was not. It was established in Hyden ,KY for the health needs of the the people (Primarily pregnant women of Southeast Kentucky) by Mary Breckenridge in 1839. Not a fan of taking this out of Southeast Kentucky!
