Message from Dean Jean Giddens on the school's actions to prevent the spread of COVID-19

Our Return to Learn Team continues to meet regularly to plan our return to campus this fall. The team has made every effort to implement social distancing measures and provide a safe environment for everyone. But we can’t do this alone. Each of us has a role and responsibility to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Read more »

Nursing scholarships at VCU will nearly double thanks to donations

A new $3 million gift, combined with a $2.5 million commitment from last year, will allow the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Nursing to nearly double the number of need-based scholarships for undergraduate students.
