Giving to the Department of Nursing

Our Vision

Nurses are with us when we are at our most vulnerable. Often, they are the best at understanding our experience and putting us at ease. They are the most important link between a patient and the health care system. And they possess the expertise and understanding to model care to meet patient needs.

At University of Michigan Health, the Department of Nursing is leading the way in advancing research, scientific discoveries, and nursing excellence.

Your support of research, innovation, wellness, career development, and other areas gives nurses the resources and encouragement they need to advance ideas and improve care for patients.
