We welcomed a new class of nursing students to campus this week. It’s our largest nursing class ever, 160 students. A number is a simple thing to state, but the hard work and long hours it represents is considerable. Faculty and staff in the SON will be putting in a lot of extra effort to see this group of women and men realize their dreams. Ultimately, society benefits, when our high-caliber UTMB trained nurses enter the workforce and help you, me and a generation of baby boomers who’ll be putting record-setting pressure on the U.S. health care delivery system.
