 The Yale School of Nursing is a small school which must raise its own funds. The dean is committed to decreasing graduates’ loan burden, and the NCIN grant has helped make that possible for lower-income students.

The school of nursing at Yale University has the nation’s only accelerated BSN program that does not require prerequisite coursework prior to matriculation. School officials believe that “farming out” these courses is a financial burden to students, increases the amount of time it takes for them to earn their degrees, and undermines efforts to diversify the student body. As a result, many students in Yale’s accelerated nursing program have backgrounds in the arts and humanities rather than the sciences. School officials believe this diverse knowledge base strengthens the student body. The dean successfully leveraged NCIN funding to raise more than $5 million in 2013 from citizens, alumni, and organizations, and many donors expressed support for the school’s mission to serve under served groups. 


I believe this about nursing..."It is meaningful work."

 I believe this about nursing…that it is a profession unlike any other.
