Greniewicki is currently a professor at Brenau University School of Nursing in Gainesville, Georgia. She served as its inaugural dean from 1978 to 1986 and served as dean of the College of Health and Human Services at Troy University from 1993 to 1999. In addition to the family ties with UAB, Greniewicki now maintains her ties to the SON through philanthropy. Her belief in the extreme importance of developing graduate-level nurses led her to contribute to the Advanced Practice Scholarship. She was further inspired to give to this scholarship out of her gratitude and loyalty to UAB and her fondness for Jean Kelley, EdD, RN, FAAN. “Thanks to Dr. Kelley, I had the opportunity to complete her first class of graduate-level pediatric nurse practitioners,” Greniewicki says, “and her influence didn’t stop with my education at UAB. Throughout my career, I could always call on Dr. Kelley for sound, logical advice.”

Greniewicki’s passion for UAB is rivaled only by her passion for the Florence Nightingale Letters Restoration Project. She has made monetary contributions toward this project as well and is very interested in seeing it come to fruition. “I think it’s a rare opportunity for UAB—a lost treasure and a centerpiece for programming. We need to hold onto all the inspiration and guidance from that past that we can, especially in these rapidly changing times for nursing and health care.”
