Chancellor's Reflection: 40 Years of the Nursing Program

As the coronavirus pandemic in spring 2020 altered so many aspects of how we stay connected, Chancellor Stroble began a weekly series of communication with alumni, donors and friends to share ways that Webster faculty, staff, students and alumni have rallied to support each other and their communities during these unprecedented times.

Dear donors, alumni and friends,

Greetings once again from Webster University. While I may not be physically on campus, I remain connected and committed to the Webster community each and every day. I am proud of the ways our faculty, staff, students and alumni have rallied to support each other and their communities during these unprecedented times.

Now in its 40th year, Webster University’s Nursing Department in the College of Arts & Sciences is recognized for its holistic, real-world approach to nursing theory and practice. More than 300 registered nurses are enrolled in Webster’s nursing program, and these dedicated students are applying their learning to their life-saving work on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Webster's nursing program is known as one of the best in the region, and our exemplary faculty make that possible. In this week’s Chancellor’s Reflection, Mary Ann Drake, PhD, RN, CNE, a nursing professor, explains what sets apart Webster’s nursing program and how Webster students are making an impact during this international crisis.

Many of Webster’s nursing students attend through the generosity of individuals, foundations and employers who provide scholarships and donations to further their education. During this time of immediate need, please consider making a donation. Your gift will help current students complete their program during this crisis and allow future health care leaders access to a Webster education so they can prepare for any situation.

I look forward to connecting with you next week. Please stay safe and healthy.

Sincerely,

Elizabeth (Beth) J. Stroble, PhD
Chancellor
