Year in Review 2012
Dear Connell School community,
I am pleased to report highlights of the Connell School of Nursing’s outstanding 2011–12 academic year. Many of our alumni, faculty, staff, and students were recognized with well-earned honors and awards in nursing education, research, and clinical care. Meanwhile, across New England and around the world, members of Boston College’s nursing school community took on leadership roles “from the bedside to the boardroom,” following the clarion call of the 2010 Future of Nursing report.
In early summer 2012, building on our partnership with Switzerland’s University of Applied Sciences, the Connell School hosted Global Health Care: Meeting Challenges and Making Connections. For the first time, nursing and pre-med students from the U.S. and Switzerland, and faculty from these countries and Ireland, spent four weeks on the Boston College campus comparing health care systems and practices around the world.
These are just some of the accomplishments of our gifted and dynamic community that make me proud to lead the nursing school in its 65th year, and grateful for your loyalty and commitment.
