Better Health for All People

Advanced practice nurses. Midwives. Scientists. Leaders. The Yale School of Nursing (YSN) prepares expert clinicians, researchers, and policymakers who tackle the biggest questions in healthcare. Your support of the school can help Yale nurses turn the tide on COVID, stem chronic disease, care for aging populations, advance equal access to care, and respond to health challenges posed by global warming. Your giving makes a difference.

Caring for the Global Community

Better health for all people—this is the School of Nursing’s ultimate mission. Distinguished faculty educate their students with the view that high-quality, patient-centered healthcare is a right for all. Graduates take this philosophy everywhere they go after Yale, caring for communities and populations around the globe who depend on their expert knowledge and skills. Now, more than ever, health equity is a matter of urgent importance. With donor support, the School of Nursing is answering that call.
