School of Nursing Development Campaign Well Under Way

The School of Nursing has received more than $9 million in pledges and gifts toward its building renovation and for scholarship support. The school is now well on its way to its campaign goal of $25 million.

The School of Nursing has always been a national and international model for schools of nursing in education, research and clinical care and is now at a crossroads in its history. To continue to develop and deliver the kind of programs for which it is so well known, a totally renovated School of Nursing building has been named the top priority by the school’s Board of Visitors. The new building will allow the school to increase numbers of faculty and students yet will preserve its magnificent Georgian facade and architecture while housing a state of the art community school of nursing. It will provide access to health care for its Washington Heights neighbors in the form of a Wellness Center that will include expansion of student clinical experiences. Innovative interactive classrooms and information technology centers for increasing numbers of student applicants will also be added.
