Message from the Dean

Where did the year go? 2014-2015 was a memorable one for the School of Nursing, celebrating our 40th anniversary.

We kicked off our inaugural Florence Nightingale Awards in Nursing, honoring six very talented registered nurses from across the state of Kentucky and in Southern Indiana.

We watched nurses care for Ebola patients, with two from Texas contracting the disease. It’s who we are, it’s what we do.

We step up to the plate and we give of ourselves. We make a difference every day in the lives we treat and for whom we care, in the students we teach and watch learn, and in the research we conduct with subjects from all walks of life.

UofL nurses soar to great heights, just like Cardinals!!

Thanks for choosing and being a part of our School of Nursing!

We congratulate each and every one of you as we celebrate Nurses Week, May 6-12.
