Dean’s Note

Dear Class of 2020,

Congratulations! You have worked hard to reach this milestone and I know you will continue learning as a life-long process. Whether you are starting your career or moving into advanced practice, leadership, or research, your Loyola Nursing degree will serve you well into the future. There’s no better time than during this Year of the Nurse (and during a pandemic) for nursing professionals – all of you – to use your voice and knowledge to create a culture of health for all. You are called at this moment to go forth and set the world on fire!
