“Nurses are the future of safe, effective, efficient, and compassionate health care delivery. Every one of us will one day be affected by the care of a nurse. When my husband was sick, he brightened whenever his nurses walked into his hospital room.”

Marge Tarplee, philanthropist and former chair of the IU School of Nursing Board of Advisors. “Twenty years ago we were THE nursing school in the state. Now we are one of THE nursing schools in the COUNTRY. You don’t get to this level without the support of donors. Philanthropy is what makes great educational programs, allowing us to attract superb

DEAN’S

MESSAGE

Dear Friends,

Indiana’s economy, as well as the health care of its population, depends upon the availability of qualified health care professionals. From humble beginnings in 1914 with nine students, Indiana University School of Nursing (IUSON) has grown into a first-class educational and research institution. All of this is possible because of the efforts of faculty, students, staff and alumni and the financial support the School has received from so many individuals, corporations and foundations.

The following pages outline the School’s priorities as we approach our 100th anniversary in 2014 and prepare for the next century of excellence.

Please consider investing in the School’s future as we continue to: • Contribute to a highly educated professional nurse workforce by

preparing nursing students who will be leaders in practice and education.

• Empower faculty with resources to create and test knowledge enabling them to focus on research, mentoring and involving students in a rich environment of discovery.

• Engage in research and collaborative practices to improve the safety and quality of patient care as well as integrate these principles as the best practices in nursing education

• Expand student’s knowledge and appreciation of health care globally and cultural differences and needs to better meet the needs of a diverse patient population in our global society.

As the leading educator of nurses in the state of Indiana, IUSON graduates well-educated professionals who are ready to provide outstanding patient care, teach future nurses, develop knowledge to improve care and shape the health care systems of the future. Thank you both for your investment and your faith in us. It will ensure the continuation of this mission and launch us into our next 100 years of service to Indiana and its citizens.

When Sally Tate saw the young nurse’s smile, she recognized him right away. Ken Johnson

was on duty when Tate’s husband was admitted to the neuro-intensive care unit at Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis. Yes, they had met before. Ken had visited the Tate home in Kokomo for lunch after he was awarded the Irene R. and Nathaniel Aycock Nursing Scholarship, a fund established by Tate in honor of her aunt and uncle.

“I always felt it was more than a coincidence that I was able to care for Dr. Tate and his wife, the very people who had helped me,” says Johnson.” A School of Nursing alumnus, Tate established the Aycock scholarship to recognize high-achieving nursing students. “We received a very quick and wonderful return on our donation,” she says proudly. “The money I’ve received goes far beyond paying for a laptop or my rent or tuition. It’s providing me connections and opportunities to network with leading nurse researchers. I would not be on this path without financial assistance.” Esther Smith-Howell, RN; BSN-to-PhD candidate and recipient of a Richard M. Fairbanks Foundation/Indianapolis Private Industry Council grant and the Irene R. and Nathaniel Aycock Nursing Scholarship.

WE

CREATE

In 2009-2010, Indiana University School of Nursing provided more than $700,000 in student scholarships and fellowships, lowering the cost of education and attracting stellar nurses. Scholarships ensure that our students can focus on their studies and hands-on clinical experiences in more than 75 area hospitals, community clinics and other health care facilities.

“I was missing all the important moments in my children’s lives because I was working full time and going to school full time. I am so grateful for these scholarships. They ease our financial pressures and allow me to focus on school and family.”

Tuesday Majors, president of the Class of 2011; recipient of the Monserrat Callangan-Mingus Nursing Scholarship and the Shirley Crutchfield Mehleck Scholarship.

“Because of the endowed professorship, we are growing a whole new cadre of nurse-scientists here and around the country. We have honors students writing their own fundable grants, and our study investigators just submitted 11 abstracts to the Oncology Nursing Society. With this funding, I can focus on research, mentoring, and involving many students in a rich environment of discovery.” Joan Haase, PhD, RN, FAAN; the Emily Holmquist Professor for Pediatric Oncology Nursing.

“I never feel like I’m going solo trying to figure it out myself. I always feel my faculty mentors walking beside me, coaching and guiding me in the research process.”

Cynthia Bell, RN; a doctoral student who received first place in the doctoral category at the 2009 Annual Midwest Nursing Research Society Conference for her study of death worries in young breast cancer survivors.

As the largest nursing school in the country to offer both undergraduate and doctoral degrees, we are easing faculty shortages by educating more nurses at the graduate level and grooming doctoral candidates for faculty positions. We are part of the solution to the nursing shortage by educating the next generation of nurse leaders. Indeed, our program has developed many of the most respected nursing faculty in the country.

To support the professors and mentors of nursing’s next generation, we must increase the number of endowed chairs, endowed professors and graduate fellowships, ensuring our leadership in the advancement of nursing education research and evidence-based educational practices around the globe.

“Cancer is a disease of the individual, but everyone is affected. Dr. Champion’s work in behavioral oncology helps everyone cancer touches–the people going through it and the people going through it with them.” Robert W. Martin; who established the Robert W. Martin Fund for Translating Behavioral Oncology Research into Practice with a bequest in his estate plan. “Private funding is invaluable for researchers. It covers pilot studies and early collaboration that government grants don’t include. Philanthropic donations allow us to move forward with our preliminary findings and leverage bigger pools of money at National Institutes of Health (NIH).” Victoria Champion, PhD, RN, FAAN, associate dean for research; The Edward W. and Sarah Stam Cullipher Endowed Chair and the Mary Margaret Walther Distinguished Professor.

In Hebrew the number 18 is pronounced “chai,” which also translates as “life.” With 18 National Institutes of Health research grants, the School of Nursing is enhancing the lives of people with cancer and chronic conditions. And, for 18 years, the school has received continuous funding for health behavior research.

NIH consistently ranks the IU School of Nursing among the best in the nation for federally funded research; however, additional dollars from individuals or institutions are essential to support the life-sustaining research of our nurse-scientists. Their focus is on three major areas: behavioral oncology, enhancing quality of life for people with chronic illness, and nursing education.

TRANSLATING RESEARCH

FROM LAB TO PRACTICE

“U.S. health care problems are also global problems. Working abroad we learn how to address our problems at home. We think we’re there to help, but we often learn more from these caregivers than we give. They have extraordinary resilience and the ability to make do with so little.” Mary Beth Riner, PhD, RN; associate professor, Department of Environments for Health. “In Kenya, most of our nurses have only associate degrees. We have been eager to advance their training and scholarship. The IU faculty came to Moi and quickly helped us establish curriculum for a bachelor of science in nursing program.” Naomi Mutea, RN, MSN, visiting scholar and doctoral student; former lecturer at Moi University School of Medicine in Eldoret, Kenya.

“I owe so much to the IU School of Nursing for my career successes. I reached a point in my life where it was time to give back.

There is no better way to ensure our school will be supported in the future, and that our graduates will be part of the solution to the world’s complex health care issues, than to give to the IU School of Nursing.

Please make a gift, today, to support nursing tomorrow.”
