Transformational Gift for College of Nursing

We have been deeply blessed with the recent announcement of a historical gift from alumni couple Darren and Terry Jackson, who believe in our mission and have supported us to move to new heights with their time, talent and treasure. The $31 million gift will fuel scholarships, increase diversity, drive innovative health care advances and support strategic initiatives!

The Jacksons said they were inspired by university leadership's plans to significantly grow the number of Marquette Nurses around the world, as well as by the many alumni courageously leading on the frontlines of the pandemic, pictured in this video.

We know you will share our excitement for this significant opportunity in preparing the "Marquette Nurse!" Click here for more information.

Nursing students on the front line -- at Marquette

The Marquette Medical Center has been offering vaccine clinics for eligible faculty, staff and students, and nursing students have been overwhelmingly enthusiastic about the opportunity to volunteer. "In addition to clinical experience administering intramuscular injections, students underwent CDC training and reviewed procedures for dealing with potential adverse reactions that we may see in patients during the post-vaccination observation period," said Sarah Calonder, MSN, RN, CCRN and nursing volunteer coordinator for the clinics. "Our students also have been checking patients in and providing patient education about the vaccine."  

"We have seen such a wonderful response to our volunteer requests and are especially appreciative of our students dedicating their free time to helping those in the Marquette community stay healthy. They are excited to be a part of history!" said Dean Janet Krejci.
