Jean Johnson, PhD, RN, FAAN, Professor Emeritus of Nursing
I have made my gifts to the School of Nursing because I believe strongly that research conducted by nurses contributes knowledge that can make the difference between successful and unsuccessful outcomes in health care. The School of Nursing has great potential for being a leader in the development of scientific knowledge that underpins the practice of nursing. Financial resources for nurse researchers are limited, so I hope that my gifts will help overcome that barrier.
Charitable gift annuities have met two of my objectives. First, I wanted a steady income from my capital, and, second, I wanted to be assured that the School of Nursing would receive the capital upon my passing.
I was among the first generations of nurses who recognized the importance of research to the profession. My career was devoted to conducting research to generate knowledge directly relevant to the care nurses provide, and the mentoring of nurses in the research process. Even though my financial resources are modest, I wanted to do what I could to support the continuation of those activities.
