Tomorrow can’t wait.

At UVA Health System, we are taking a critical look at what has come before to discover, research, teach, and care for patients in an entirely new way. You can help.

These are our stories

The UVA School of Nursing is readying the next generation of practitioners, researchers, and faculty in a time of exciting, dramatic change in healthcare.

'Hoos on Capitol Hill? UVA Nursing, of course! #DNP student Kimone Reid, who, with American Nurses Association president Pam Cipriano, visited with Mark Warner, Senator and U.S. Senator Tim Kaine to discuss current legislation and health policy. Thanks to ALL for meaningful opportunity to talk on topics from palliative and hospice care misconceptions to the RN Safe Staffing and Home Health Care Planning and Improvement Bill (Title VIII). And fiercely proud of our national connectivity and exceptional student and faculty leaders.

A teaching & learning moment Our wonderful preceptor-mentor, Patricia Leonard Higgins, took her #communityhealth students to see the #Charlottesville statues and memorials that have captured the nation's attention. Much fodder for classroom discussion, and nurses' roles in emergency preparedness and healing.

Brothers’ Keeper

If brothers Ricardo and Rafael Diaz had each always considered careers in healthcare, it wasn’t until an illness, subsequent surgeries and a lengthy recovery that their paths toward nursing truly solidified. For elder brother Ricardo, now a rising second-year student in the School of Nursing, his experience transitioning from a high school junior active in soccer, golf and swimming to a patient, weak and ailing, proved his turning point. For younger brother Rafael, today an entering first-year nursing student, it was the intensity of observing his brother’s plight and a budding determination to help him in ways both big and small.
