Thank you!
The VCU School of Nursing faculty and staff want to extend our sincere gratitude to all of our alumni who are on the front lines during this unprecedented time. We know how tirelessly you are working for the greater good. We see you and we thank you!

We also want to thank all of our alumni who are coming out of retirement to help or are sharing their knowledge with others in their community, continuing to work on research projects or helping acquire much-needed supplies — and the list goes on.

Nurses are vital to providing health care worldwide, and their crucial role is being recognized now more than ever. Thank you for your sacrifices and all that you are doing for our communities.
