Make a Difference

The Faculty of Nursing has been producing nursing leaders in clinical, research, educational and administrative roles for more than four decades.

Faculty and staff have demonstrated steadfast commitment to making a difference that matters in the lives of our students, in the practice of nursing and in the health of our communities.

Over the decades, this striving for excellence in nursing education has been coupled with research excellence that is reshaping nursing practice.

In 2012-13, the Faculty of Nursing launched an ambitious strategic plan that mirrors the University of Calgary’s Eyes High strategic direction and promises to propel us toward recognition as a top five Canadian nursing school by 2016.

Outlined in the plan are three key pillars together with priorities for investment of energy and resources to advance our goals. The pillars are:

  • Creating a Culture of Community
  • Excelling in Scholarship of Teaching, Learning and Practice, and
  • Strengthening Research and Knowledge Translation

The Faculty of Nursing has identified a few specific philanthropic funding opportunities that will help us achieve our goal of becoming one of Canada’s top five nursing schools. We invite you to join us.

Student Enhancement Fund

Make a donation 

The Student Enhancement Fund supports activities that enhance student engagement such as conference attendance, conference travel and initiatives that demonstrate a commitment to strengthen student experience.


International Student Experience

Make a donation 

The Faculty of Nursing encourages international travel for our students where they will have meaningful cultural experiences as part of their programs of study. As outlined in the University of Calgary's International Strategy, our goal is that 50% of our students will have an international experience before they graduate.

Student Scholarships

Make a donation 

Each year, thousands of University of Calgary students require financial assistance to access post-secondary education. Many of these students would not have the opportunity to study without the generous support from dedicated donors. Contributions elevate the student experience by helping hard-working students pursue their dreams. By alleviating the financial stress of a university education, a student can focus on their studies and obtain a degree.
