Dear Duke University Nursing Alumni,

Today, more than ever, nursing leaders are needed around the world. As the health care needs of society change, nurses must have the complex knowledge and advanced technical skills to address those changes. Duke University School of Nursing is preparing nurse leaders who will provide critical patient-centered care, direct the efforts of entire teams of caregivers, and lead change that will improve health at home and around the world.

We want you to be proud of your school and the important work that is being done here on campus and across the nation.
