I am pleased to share that we are back in full force in the College of Nursing. Although students were always learning during this last year, we had to modify our classes and how we gathered in our building. We are now evaluating the many lessons learned during our experience with COVID-19 and will keep those activities that made us stronger. As you can see in this newsletter, we continued to have students, staff and faculty excelling in their scholarship and service to others. I am so pleased they were recognized for their outstanding contributions.
If you are in Iowa City this summer please stop in and see the newly renovated Jerold and Jacqueline Dock Terrace. It is a beautiful location to sit and relax and enjoy our beautiful perch above the Iowa River.
