We have been ranked #1 in NIH funding and for that I am grateful to our entire School community for their commitment to excellence and scholarship. Being ranked in the top three schools of nursing reflects a commitment to advancing knowledge that contributes to quality health care and to best practices. I would like to extend my deep appreciation to our research office for supporting and facilitating our research and discovery process and our grantsmanship. Without the incredible dedication of this office, the vision and hard work of our research centers (Thank you Directors), the mentorship within the Divisions (Thank you Division Chairs) and the inspiring work of each researcher and faculty member in the School, we would not be able to achieve such a position.
I am so proud of our School community. Congratulations and lets keep this momentum going!
