UCI alumnus (’74) and Foundation trustee Tom Yuen Reflects on the Power of Nursing
The William and Sue Gross Family Foundation has committed $40 million to UC Irvine to establish a nursing school and assist in the construction of a new building to house it. The contribution is the largest single gift ever to UC Irvine.
Three years ago, UC Irvine nursing graduates Kim Hicks and Angela Giles came to the same conclusion after attending a presentation at AACN's National Teaching Institute & Critical Care Exposition: their surgical intensive care unit was worthy of the Beacon Award.
The UC Irvine Program in Nursing Science was established in 2007 with a vision to demonstrate how the power of nursing promotes the health and well-being of our community.
