Help students develop inquisitive minds, compassionate hearts and healing hands
The Loretto Heights School of Nursing (LYHSON), part of the Rueckert-Hartman College for Health Professions, has a distinguished history of educating nurses who strive to provide the highest level of compassionate care for their patients and root their work deeply in the Jesuit values. These socially responsible nurses are committed to social justice and the community, and reflect that in their work daily. Nursing students are taught to handle the day-to-day challenges of health care and how to adapt to this constantly changing field where no workday is the same. To prepare these students, Regis offers a comprehensive nursing education to teach leadership, adaptability and technical skills.
Your gift to the Loretto Heights School of Nursing Excellence Fund provides a learning environment that is individualized and innovative, and fosters a holistic, values-centered approach to the future of nursing.
Accomplishments of the LYHSON in the past year include:
- The addition of five new faculty members.
- The introduction of a rural health Family Nurse Practitioner track in collaboration with the Colorado Center for Nursing Excellence and the Colorado Rural Health center to utilize new technology to educate nurse practitioners in rural areas while they can continue to work where they are.
- The recognition of LHSON instructor Dr. MaryJo Coast, one of 12 nurses in Colorado to receive the prestigious Nightingale Award from the Colorado Nurses Foundation for her advocacy for the homeless population and leadership of Project Homeless Connect.
