On 10 December 1952, the first formal organizational meeting of the Connecticut League for Nursing was held at Heublein Hall in Hartford Hospital. Ruth M. Olson, Director of Nursing at New Britain Memorial Hospital, was elected the first President. Dues were $5 and there were 338 charter members and 37 friends of nursing.
The vision of CLN's original founders continues today through the League's current programs and activities as guided by the current Mission Statement:
"The Connecticut League for Nursing advances and strengthens the nursing profession by providing education for and facilitating collaboration among educators, practitioners, administrators, consumers and other stakeholders to meet the needs of diverse populations in an ever-changing healthcare environment."
