After eight years at the helm of the University of Kentucky College of Nursing, Dean Janie Heath is retiring so she can slow down and enjoy quality time with her family and friends.
Please join us for the UK College of Nursing's 20th Anniversary of the DNP Program Celebration! UK's DNP program was the first in the country and continues to grow to meet the complex health needs of patients, families, communities and healthcare systems.
The event will take place at The Campbell House on Friday, April 14, 2023 from 5:30 to 9 p.m.
Two students, an alumna and a staff member from the College of Nursing were honored on Friday, October 14 during the 31st annual Lyman T. Johnson Awards program, which was hosted by The UK Alumni Association, the Lyman T. Johnson African American Alumni Group, and the UK Office for Institutional Diversity. Friday’s ceremony was a combined 2021 and 2022 ceremony because last year’s event was postponed due to the pandemic.
