As the Class of 2023 gathers to celebrate, this moment offers a chance to stop and think about the journey they have taken together in our mission to improve the health and well-being of West Virginians — and beyond.

We know that wherever they go, they will help to make the world a better place, taking with them the values that make Mountaineers truly special — service, curiosity, respect, accountability and appreciation. They have chosen a life that seeks to better the lives of others, through health, wisdom and compassion. And we can’t wait to see what they do.

Message from Dean Hulsey

As I have always said, nursing is not just a career — it is a calling. You were called to this profession for a reason and I’m so glad you have answered the call. Nursing leaders like you are needed throughout West Virginia and beyond.

School of Nursing Dean &
E. Jane Martin Endowed Professor

Mountaineers go first.

WVU has prepared me and my friends to be good nurses not by giving us basic facts and knowledge, but rather by making us adaptable and dynamic — adaptable to where we understand and implement new changes that occur, but also dynamic enough to be the pioneers that are making those changes that will advance the care of our future patients.
