From the Dean

Susan Gennaro, dean, Connell School of Nursing

Dear Friends,

This issue of Voice focuses on leadership in health care, with news and features on alumni leaders and the Connell School of Nursing’s pioneering efforts to educate and train students abroad before they go forward to “set the world aflame.”

Our story on living and learning in Ecuador brings alive some of the experiences of five undergraduates who spent a recent semester doing clinical training, improving their language skills, and expanding their cultural competence in South America.

This edition of the magazine also highlights alumni who are leading some of the nation’s top health care institutions and organizations, from a major urban teaching hospital to the American Nurses Association. They stand at the vanguard of health care improvement in the United States.

Ultimately, it is the achievements of faculty and students, and the standout work of alumni, that demonstrate the impact of a school.

I hope to see you soon, and to hear more about what you are doing as a member of the Connell School of Nursing family.


Susan Gennaro
