  • A Message from the Dean

    It is with great pride that I reflect on my first year as Dean of the University at Buffalo School of Nursing. I am humbled by the dedication to the nursing profession, scientific research, innovative education, and to the local and global communities demonstrated by our faculty, staff, alumni, and students. Their efforts position us as a beacon of excellence in nursing.

Student Perspective

Just as the fall 2022 semester was winding down, and as Buffalo, New York, was facing a cold and snowy start to winter, three University at Buffalo School of Nursing students stepped into equatorial heat and sunshine. Danielle Cieri, Michael Pereira and Ryan Stehlin, all registered nurses and students in UB’s Doctor of Nursing Practice program, traveled to West Africa to provide health care and education to residents of Accra, Ghana, a region home to 4 million people and one of the fastest growing cities on the continent of Africa.
