UW–Madison School of Nursing Officially Kicks Off Centennial Celebration

The University of Wisconsin–Madison School of Nursing is commemorating its 100-year anniversary throughout 2024 with a year-long series of educational and social events to help observe the milestone. The celebration officially kicked off on the evening of Tuesday, January 23, at Signe Skott Cooper Hall, featuring remarks from both the School of Nursing’s Dean, Dr. Linda D. Scott, and UW–Madison Chancellor, Jennifer L. Mnookin.

Deans Who Dared

They came from big cities and small towns. They served during wars, economic collapse, sweeping cultural and political change, and a global pandemic. They fought against oppression and the belief that nurses were second-class health care professionals who didn’t need higher education.

Dean’s Letter | Spring 2023

It is an honor to lead the UW–Madison School of Nursing at this special time in our history as we approach our centennial year, 2024. This milestone is an opportunity to celebrate the impact that our students, faculty, staff, and alumni have had on the health of populations by developing knowledge, providing care, informing policy, and on advancing the nursing profession itself.

Dean’s Letter | Fall 2022

As our students prepare to contribute to a nursing workforce with an aim to build health equity, they must be aware of and willing to disrupt sources of disparities. To do so, they must be encouraged to recognize, embrace, and trust their capacity to lead and create change. Cultivating a leadership mindset and identity is integral to nursing education. I can proudly say that it is a point of distinction at the SoN.
