School of Nursing Gets $5 Million for Education Building

School of Nursing education buildingTHE UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA’S School of Nursing has been awarded a $5 million grant — its single largest gift ever — by the Claude Moore Charitable Foundation of Fairfax, Va., for a planned school expansion that will include a new four-story, 32,000-square-foot nursing education building. “We have envisioned this expansion for a decade. Each year we turn away qualified applicants due to a lack of space, at a time when the shortage of nurses is increasingly severe. The foundation’s gift toward the new building will truly transform the School of Nursing, not only providing more and improved space, but also enabling the school to expand its research mission, upgrade its clinical simulation labs and graduate more new nurses,” said nursing school dean Jeanette Lancaster.

Following his remarks, there will be a question-and-answer period and a reception. Creating the chief diversity officer position was the No. 1 recommendation of U.Va. President John T.
