The UAB School of Nursing is ranked among the top five percent of nursing schools in the country.  We lead the state in discovery and application of knowledge in nursing education and health care delivery to overcome the most challenging health issues facing Alabama today.  Our educators, clinical nurses and scientists determine the best ways to prepare nurse leaders; provide care and support to patients and their families; and maintain health and quality of life.  These evidence-based breakthroughs become the standard of care that other nursing schools and health care systems across the globe adopt and follow.  Discoveries made at the UAB School of Nursing shape and mold the health of our city, state, country and world.


Gifts help the School of Nursing accomplish a level of excellence that is not possible with state and research funding alone. Partners in that effort include the School of Nursing Board of Visitors and Junior Board of Visitors and the School of Nursing Alumni Chapter of the UAB National Alumni Society, as well as numerous friends of the School. There are quite a variety ways to give a gift that will help shape the School’s future.
