Donate to the School of Nursing

Since its beginning in 1937, the Duquesne University School of Nursing has been defined by its scholarship, innovation, and student centeredness. The School continues to embrace the future with careful, strategic planning and action that builds on our reputation as a pioneer of nursing education and one of the nation's foremost nursing schools.

In this unique learning environment, evidence-based nursing, critical thinking and intellectual curiosity go hand-in-hand with ethical practice, community service and a commitment to social justice. Our goal is to ensure that our students exemplify--in the best Duquesne tradition--the highest levels of competency, compassion and ethical behavior.

Patty attended Alumni Homecoming Champagne Brunches, fundraising dinners with nursing students, nursing graduations and networking events. She served to develop the minds, hearts, and spirits of nursing students and alumni. Patty's legacy would be to become involved, fight for what you believe in and never give up.
