The Dorothea Dix Hospital was the first North Carolina psychiatric hospital located on Dix Hill in Raleigh, North Carolina and named after mental health advocate Dorothea Dix from New England. It was founded in 1856 and closed in 2012. The site is now known as Dorothea Dix Park and serves as Raleigh's largest city park.
In 1898, Dix Hospital started taking in nursing students on an ad hoc basis. A Nurses Training School was officially established in 1902.
