Thank You!

Thank You for making the 40th anniversary of the first baccalaureate nursing class a wonderful success! Throughout this year we reconnected with one another, reflected about The Future of Nursing, and honored one of our founding mothers, Dr. Gladys M. Word. Pictures from our year-long celebration have been added to the photo gallery on this site. (See below) Please take a moment to view all of the photos and reminisce.

Thank you as well for the many contributions toward building the Dr. Gladys M. Word Endowment Fund. This special fund will support the ongoing expansion and development of the Dr. Gladys M. Word Nursing Simulation Laboratory. Combined, TSC/TCNJ nursing alumni, faculty, and friends have committed over $40,000 toward our initial goal of $100,000. Your support will allow us to continue to provide first-rate clinical training to our students. On behalf of the generations of future students who are the true beneficiaries of these gifts, we extend our deepest and most heartfelt THANKS!!

We hope you will continue to keep us informed about your achievements, that you will stay connected with each other, and that you will continue to support TCNJ nursing!

Best wishes for a happy summer,
Susan Bakewell-Sachs
