uc irvine giving day 2021 logoGiving Day 2021 at the UCI Sue & Bill Gross School of Nursing was a historic one for the school, raising more than $32,380 in support of our future nurses.

The funds will support our students’ needs in the areas of:

  • Technology
  • Diagnostic equipment
  • Study aids
  • White coats

Students’ skills totes, necessary for learning the techniques that will make them great nurses, will also continue to be funded.

The community was moved by the story of Isabella, a third-year nursing student. Last year, she received her own skills tote from a donor. She shared her educational journey and her story of what it means to receive a donor’s support at a time of struggle for her own family.

“It was mind-blowing to witness how much people cared to support our future as nurses. Our lives are dedicated to the service of others- knowing that these sponsors believe so strongly in that impact is something truly special and motivating,” she says.
