Our community of scholars, educators and learners strive to promote human dignity in all our endeavors.

We strive to interact with difference around and among us with respect, kindness and trust. We believe in compassion and integrity.

    Student Spotlight

     

    I wanted to study nursing as I’ve been grateful to work with some amazing nurses who care for patients and their families with compassion, dedication, and tremendous heart. That compassionate heart of nursing can impact patients in such a powerful way. I wanted to help contribute to that impact, and I’m grateful the Tan Chingfen Graduate School of Nursing at UMass Chan Medical School gave me the opportunity to begin my own path in nursing.

    Student Spotlight

     

    Word of mouth initially drew me to UMass Chan Medical School, because of the focus on the needs of vulnerable populations locally and globally. The Tan Chingfen Graduate School of Nursing PhD program gives me tools to pursue research I’m passionate about - even if that changes now that I’m enrolled.
