Dear Alumni and Friends,
As we prepare for 2022, we can expect various trends to remain central throughout nursing, some of which are long overdue.
Prioritizing our self-care, relentlessly pursuing health care experiences that are inclusive, diverse, and accepting, providing adequate resources for long-term care facilities or positioning influential nurse leaders in key roles are all mission-critical and integral to the future of our college and the health of the world.
With these critical factors in mind, we are building our strategic plan around the following priorities:
Transforming Education — our equitable, student-centered curriculum will prepare nurse leaders for complex healthcare systems
Enhancing Health with Research & Innovation — we will lead the development of nurse scientists and translation of research to practice
Stewarding our Planet’s Resources — we will prioritize responsible usage with a focus on sustainability in health care
Using Arts & Humanities to Further Nursing — we will integrate arts and humanities to address challenges in providing care
Service through Outreach & Digital Innovation — through the use of technology and digital solutions, we will serve the Commonwealth
Our mission to create nurse leaders who will transform lives and health around the world will only be realized with bold intentionality and action. And we cannot do it alone, and thankfully, we don’t have to. With the continued support of our tremendous alumni and friends, we are bound to make a great impact.
We hope you enjoy this issue and take pride in being a part of the only named nursing school in the Big 10!
