In 2016, the Idaho State University School of Nursing is celebrating a diamond anniversary milestone: 60 years of graduating professional nurses in Idaho. These graduates have cared for Idaho citizens and patients in many other states and countries. They serve in every community and every care setting, bringing leadership, developing patient education programs, and enhancing clinical outcomes. These contributions to the betterment of healthcare and to the health status of Idahoans are significant.
We invite every graduate of the ISU School of Nursing and the many friends of our school to donate at least $60 in honor of these important 60 years. Every gift made to the School of Nursing 60 for 60 Campaign will be added toward an endowed scholarship in honor of the 60th Anniversary.
As we prepare to celebrate the many contributions that have been made by graduates over the past 60 years, we look to the future and to ways we can further support the School of Nursing and its growth. ISU’s School of Nursing is a top-ranked school within the Division of Health Sciences that has been preparing Baccalaureate nurse leaders since 1956 and graduate nursing education since 1982. Today it offers the only Ph.D. in nursing degree program in Idaho, in addition to the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP). Advanced Registered Nursing Practice education includes preparation in Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) and Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP).

An endowment fund is a permanent, self-sustaining source of funding. Endowment assets are invested. Each year, a portion of the value of the fund is paid out to support the fund’s purpose, and any earnings in excess of this distribution are used to build the fund’s market value. In this way, an endowment fund can grow and provide support for its designated purpose in perpetuity. When an endowment fund is established, it creates a permanent legacy of support for Idaho State University.
