$2 million gift

The Hahn School of Nursing and Health Science was awarded a $2 million gift from the Dickinson Foundation for the Betty and Bob Beyster Institute for Nursing Research, Advanced Practice, and Simulation. The gift will finance the first-floor lab, which will be named the Donald C. and Elizabeth M. Dickinson Simulation and Standardized Patient Nursing Laboratory, in honor the parents of Martin Dickinson. Since 1999, the Dickinson Foundation has awarded $1.4 million in gifts to support the Hahn School of Nursing and Health Science’s Master’s Entry Program in Nursing.

The Beyster Institute for Nursing Research, or the BINR, is the first of its kind in the United States. The Hahn School of Nursing and Health Science has raised $10 million of the $15 million needed for the project.For more information on the Beyster Institute for Nursing Research, click here.
