How very little can be done under the spirit of fear.” – Florence Nightingale

The University of Iowa College of Nursing stands in solidarity with Black Lives Matter …

We emphatically denounce all forms of individual and systemic social injustices, including racial oppression. Together as a college, we will strive to hold our faculty, staff, and students accountable for their attitudes and actions as we uphold the tenets of the colleges Seven Pillars of Diversity and uphold our professional commitment to nursing. We pledge to work harder to educate and empower our nursing community about social justice and its connection to nursing and health care. We are more than a college; we are a community that cares.
