“On behalf of the faculty and staff of the Whitson-Hester School of Nursing, I want to say THANK YOU to our nursing alumni and all nurses, doctors, and healthcare workers for being on the frontlines and taking care of the people in our communities, the state, the nation, and internationally! Your amazing sacrifice does not go unnoticed during this challenging pandemic. While the WHSON focuses on educating, preparing, and graduating the next generation of nurses to help you in this fight, we want you to know that we appreciate you.  As we stay home, socially isolate, and educate online with alternative virtual experiences, our thoughts and prayers are with each of you as you are faithful and loyal to your professions and committed to the care of others. Thank you for being our heroes…”

Interacting with such a diverse group of students and a faculty with a broad range of experience and interests provides opportunity for the personal and intellectual development needed for the student preparing for the role of the professional nurse.
