Support the Nurses Who Are There for You and Our Patients

Nurses are with us when we are at our most vulnerable. They are the most important link between a patient and the health care system. And they have a unique understanding of how care should be delivered to best meet patient needs.

Nursing at Michigan is leading the way in developing care practices that make a difference. Your support of research, innovation, wellness, career development, and more gives our nurses the resources and encouragement they need to advance the ideas that improve care for patients everywhere.

A gift to Nursing at Michigan can:

  • Advance groundbreaking research that improves practices and standards of care 
  • Support nurses and honor their commitment to their patients 
  • Create opportunities for nurses to gain crucial knowledge and advance their careers 

Nurses are there for us in our times of need. Your support will show that we are there for them.
