Donors are Changing Worlds at UNM’s College of Nursing

The UNM College of Nursing is prominent in the baccalaureate and graduate education of professional nurses. This is exemplified by our rankings nationwide in the top twenty percent for our graduate programs, the number five position for our nurse-midwifery program and the number fifteen ranking for our nurse practitioner program. As New Mexico’s first academic institution offering a PhD in Nursing, the College is preparing nurses to advance in nursing education, research and practice.

Each year, the College counts on private gifts to maintain its tradition of educational excellence. Every gift you make to the UNM College of Nursing makes a difference and changes worlds for our students, the faculty and the College. There are many giving opportunities that directly support undergraduate and graduate students with scholarships, faculty with endowed chairs and professorships, academic programs with endowments and the College with state-of-the-art equipment and capital improvements. Gifts to the College promote an ongoing investment in students, faculty and educational programs.

Whose world will you change?
