The College of Nursing at UMSL is fortunate to be the beneficiary of volunteer support from its alumni and friends. It also depends on the generosity of alumni and friends to make gifts so the College can achieve its constant growth and success beyond what state funds can provide. Your tax deductible gift in any amount is greatly appreciated and will assist the College in its goal of preparing nursing professionals who are qualified to provide excellent care and take leadership roles in any health care environment.
