We Have A Dream... Share Our Dream... We Will Achieve It...

We Have A Dream... At UNCG School of Nursing, in the midst of our 2014 spring semester, we are fully embracing the realization of our dream - to be "that beacon of excellence as a School of Nursing where student dreams are fulfilled and thereby make a difference for themselves and the health care profession, not only for the Triad and North Carolina, but also for the nation and beyond." The excitement centers on our call to meet the increased demand for highly educated and prepared nurses to care for our growing communities and embrace our heightened nursing leadership role in health care delivery. Our challenge centers on our capacity to have the necessary resources to provide nurse educators, program support and student scholarship support.

The focus of this year's annual giving campaign is two-fold: nurse educators and student global citizens. Nurses are in great demand in all sectors of health care. And today there is a dramatic need for qualified nurse educators Our goal is to recruit and maintain these nurse educators. They are the pillars for student success. This year, in alignment with UNCG's core goals and values, we are focusing on Global Engagement...to ensure that each of our students has the requisite knowledge, skills and attitudes to interact effectively in a culturally diverse global context...that nursing students become good global citizens.

Share Our Dream... Our history as a School of Nursing exemplifies our core values of excellence, innovation and integrity and the opportunity to make a difference in the health care of the communities we serve.

... And We Will Achieve It! All of us will eventually need a nurse's care. Our nurses - present and future - need you NOW. As a nursing alum, friend, parent, student, faculty or staff member - please make a gift. Your annual gift of any size matters. The number of participants makes an impact not only for our nursing school but for the entire university.

Together we are the team to meet the health care demands and needs of the present and the future.
