Making an Impact: Students

Private funding that assists in educating students is seen well beyond the walls of our college & university.

One of our underlying needs always remains supporting the work of our students

  • The service and care provided by students while they are in our communities

  • The inspiration and mentorship provided by faculty members to their students

  • The improvements to patient care and health care systems

  • And the mark of the future careers of our graduates — who continue to touch the lives of their patients and inspire other nurses and health care professionals
