“I have recently been accepted into the nursing partnership between the University of Kansas and Butler. The appreciation that I have for Butler is shared by many, and I am so grateful that my school has such supportive and generous donors that help contribute to the education of future nurses such as myself! I plan on furthering my education in order to become a nurse anesthetist.”

– Sonia N., Nursing Major
