We also want to honor the friends and supporters who everyday help us to live our missions of teaching, research, practice and service grounded in caring. They’ve heard our calls and have responded in ways for which we’ll be eternally grateful. I’d like to give a special thanks to the College of Nursing Advisory Board, a strong and diverse team of community leaders and humanitarians who serve as ambassadors for the College, sharing its message and raising funds to support programs and students.
