Time for Nature.PNG

First year PhD students created THIS VIDEO as a class assignment in which they are challenged to apply nursing theory to science supporting the link between nature and health. They developed this video based on Nightingale's environmental theory which is perfect timing given that we are celebrating the 200th anniversary of her birth. Its message of healing through nature is also particularly fitting during this stress-filled time in which many people are turning to nature for restoration. The photographs were taken by the students.


To keep our students, faculty and staff safe, and following the CDC Guidelines regarding the Coronavirus, our physical offices are being covered with a few essential personnel.
