As the COVID-19 pandemic has altered our everyday lives and challenged the medical community in profound ways, SLU nurses have exhibited selfless care, compassion and service.

“They have demonstrated commitment to promoting health and well-being even though they have also been affected by the pandemic,” said Danny Willis, DNS, dean and professor at SLU’s School of Nursing. “They have demonstrated compassion and humanistic care as people have sought help, struggled with suffering, and moved through the upheaval and disruption. Being available to help whenever and wherever needed is truly admirable!”
