Top Yale officials and about 500 visitors gathered Oct. 4 at West Campus to celebrate the opening of the new School of Nursing.

President Salovey used the occasion to announce that his mother, a former nurse, and family endowed a scholarship for a nursing school student in honor of his inauguration on Oct. 13.

The new building dedication is one of a series of events taking place in celebration of the 90th anniversary of Yale School of Nursing, the oldest university-based school of nursing in the world. On Saturday, Oct. 5, YSN will host its annual alumni weekend. Events include an open house, a continuing education speaker panel on health care reform, lunch, and the 90 Yale Nurses Banquet. The YSN Alumni Association board of directors identified 90 outstanding alumni since the school’s founding — all of whom have displayed exceptional achievements in their nursing work.
