2020: INTERNATIONAL YEAR OF THE NURSE AND MIDWIFE

UF COLLEGE OF NURSING

HIGHLIGHTING OUR ALUMNI, FACULTY AND STUDENTS

When the World Health Organization designated 2020 as the “International Year of the Nurse and Midwife,” it was welcomed within the nursing profession with open arms and hearts. Now, more than ever, nurses deserve the recognition this designation brings with it. While the battle continues, the UF College of Nursing wants Gator Nurses to know that we are here for you. We support you. We thank you for your sacrifices.

Meet our faculty

Jane Gannon, DNP, CNM, CHSE

Like all colleges, the College of Nursing had to quickly alter the approach to course delivery for students in order to safeguard public health and comply with UF guidelines given the nature of the COVID-19 pandemic. Faculty, like Dr. Jane Gannon, quickly stepped up to invent and implement new ways to deliver courses virtually while maintaining the college’s expected rigorous instruction.
