In honor of Black History Month, we want to honor the first professionally trained licensed nurse, Mary Eliza Mahoney (1845-1926).
In 1878, at the age of 33, Mahoney was admitted to The New England Hospital for Women and Children professional graduate school for nursing. The program was 16 months and very intense. Of the 42 students that entered the program in 1878, only four completed it in 1879. Mahoney was one of the women who finished the program, making her the first African American in the US to earn a professional nursing license.
Mahoney spent her career as a private duty nurse. She was known for her efficiency, patience, and caring bedside manner.
In 1908, she co-founded the National Association of Colored Graduate Nurses (NACGN). At the NACGN’s first national convention, she gave the opening speech. The organization’s members elected Mahoney to be the national chaplain and gave her a life membership.
She finally retired from nursing after 40 years in the profession. However, she continued to champion women’s rights. After the 19th Amendment was ratified in August 1920, Mahoney was among the first women who registered to vote in Boston.
Mahoney lived until she was 80.
Mahoney’s pioneering spirit has been recognized with numerous awards and memorials.
The AHA further honored Mahoney in 1976 by inducting her into their Hall of Fame. Mahoney joined another esteemed group of women in 1993, when she was inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame in Seneca Falls, New York.

Consider Fortis for your nursing education today!!!! Join us on the journey of changing lives, one person at a time. Classes start January 6, 2020.


We may never know who sees us when we are not paying attention, therefore, we should always behave in the manner that honest and caring. It is easy to spot nurses who only became nurses because it “pays well” or is “easy because you get 4 days off a week”. The best nurses are always the ones who do not have to rehearse how to act around a patient, or prove to others that they are better than others. The best nurses just make people around them feel better, it is natural. We sincerely hope that everyone who chooses nursing knows the commitment that comes along with this great profession, and the lives of those that will impacted because you chose to care for others. When you choose nursing life will never be the same again, it will be far better!!!

Fortis College's Employee Spotlight for the week is on Barb Mayle, our Career Services Representative! Barb has worked in the industry for over 29 years and 14 of those years at Fortis College! She plays a crucial role in the success of the Career Services department, and we appreciate all she does to help her students!

"Throughout those 29 years, I have worked in four different colleges, in Career Services. I am a grad from a for profit school, I have a passion for the students, and can relate to many of them. I attended evening classes and worked FT hours during the day. I lived on government assistance, was in a difficult marriage, had a child that needed me to support him (he’s 41 now) and could not do it working in food service and/or retail. Within my first 3 months of employment at the business college, I wanted to give up. I felt I needed more education, or maybe I wasn’t smart enough! I continued to show up every day, give 110% and by the Grace of God I am so proud of what I have accomplished over the 29 years! To this day, I still have a passion for what I do and can really relate/understand our students. I have learned so much over the 29 years from students, co-workers, mentors and life that I enjoy giving back to our students.”
