Dear Bloomberg Nursing Community,

COVID-19 presents an unprecedented situation for the Lawrence S. Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing, the University of Toronto, and all of us collectively around the world.

This is a challenging time of heightened concern, but it is one that all of us here at Bloomberg Nursing are well-positioned for. Our faculty are working tirelessly to support our students to continue education programs as best as possible while fulfilling our obligation to wise practice in public health and safety. Our staff are working remotely in creative ways to ensure that operations continue and that our students and faculty continue to get the support they need. Students have been resilient and flexible, entering a new learning environment through the use of technology.

And to all of our alumni — we know that you are on the frontlines of this pandemic, and we are grateful for all that you are doing here in Toronto and across the world. None of the ways our community is assisting and working together goes unnoticed, and I am tremendously proud of all of you.

Thank you for your continued patience and cooperation as we work through steps that are necessary to protect our community and best serve our students. It has been remarkable to see the resilience, flexibility, and dedication our students have to their peers, colleagues and community. Thank you all for your adaptability and support of each other, and for maintaining the strong sense of community that characterizes Bloomberg Nursing. Should you have specific questions not answered in the FAQs, please contact the appropriate program director:
