UCalgary's Faculty of Nursing has a proud history going back 50 years. UCalgary nurses have been bold leaders providing excellence in care across communities in Calgary and Alberta since 1969.
As 2020 has shown us, the world needs confident, resilient, courageous and compassionate nurses to improve health disparities, quality and access for all.
We invite you to explore options to empower our nursing leaders!
We are always working on exciting initiatives in the Faculty of Nursing that would greatly benefit from your support.
The student experience
In classrooms, simulation labs and study abroad experiences, enrichment opportunities broaden the knowledge of our nursing students. Our graduates are passionate, talented health leaders and with your support, we will attract the best and brightest nursing students that will help transform our health-care system.
Research, education and practice are integrated foundations for scholarship and change that drive nursing excellence. Your support will help us to attract and retain world-class scholars eager to explore new ways to apply innovative methods to old thinking and translate research findings and evidence to real-life practice.
Our students, faculty and staff engage with local and global stakeholders to transform the well-being of individuals, families and communities. Through your support, we can explore connections between the Faculty of Nursing and our partners building healthier and more sustainable communities.
Celebrating 50 years
The Faculty of Nursing has evolved into one of Canada’s most recognized and largest nursing schools. In 2019, we recognized our rich 50-year history in pursuit of nursing excellence with many achievements made possible through the great philanthropic support of our community of alumni, donors and friends.
Power in Numbers
Generous gifts donated on Giving Day 2018 allowed us to set up Power in Numbers, a fund offering financial assistance (in the form of gift cards) to undergraduate nursing students experiencing short-term stress due to circumstances beyond their control. Students can apply for up to $500.
