January 23, 2017 marks the 10th Anniversary of the day our Faculty became the Lawrence Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing.
In 2007, Lawrence Bloomberg made a landmark donation – the largest ever received by a Canadian nursing school or faculty – and in honour of his gift, we became the first named Faculty of nursing in all of Canada. Bloomberg recognized the need to support the development of the nurses of tomorrow, and how vital it is to foster the leadership nurses bring to health care service development and care. He saw his support of our Faculty as a means of advancing the science and scholarship that underpins the education of nurses that ultimately leads to improving health care both locally and globally.
We thank Mr. Bloomberg for his gift and we extend our gratitude to each member of the Bloomberg Nursing community for helping make our Faculty a world leader in nursing education and research.
