For 70 years, the Elaine Marieb College of Nursing has been a leader in nursing education, research, and community service. Now more than ever, its leadership standing depends on private giving. Alumni are among the most loyal supporters, with friends, foundations, and corporations also playing crucial roles.

The College recognizes the need to alleviate a growing shortage of nurses nationwide and is working towards a solution by developing skilled nurses, prepared to take on ever evolving technology.

To meet this challenge, the Elaine Marieb College of Nursing must build on its strengths by:

  • increasing scholarships, fellowships, and grants to fund top students
  • funding endowed chairs, faculty positions, and innovative research
  • using cutting-edge technology and clinical simulations in classrooms

Increased support will also enable the College to develop new models of patient-centered care, uncover new knowledge, and attract the best and brightest nursing students and faculty.
