The M. Louise Fitzpatrick College of Nursing takes pride in its commitment to clinical simulation, with the goal of transforming students into uniquely compassionate, confident and experienced clinicians and leaders. Thus, a key component of a Villanova Nursing education is the Simulation and Learning Resource Center (SLRC)

To bring this distinctive learning experience to a new level, the College is in need of support to enhance and update the current technology and equipment.  

Together, we can give current and future Villanova Nursing students the very best in advanced technology, including: 

  • an upgraded crash cart 
  • a refurbished ventilator
  • high-tech mannequins
  • additional hospital beds
  • new pediatric cribs
  • and much more!

Your support, no matter the amount, goes further:

  • For the first 200 donors, your gift will be matched with an additional $100—that means $5 becomes $105 for the Simulation Center. 
  • If we reach 50 donors, $10,000 will be unlocked; if we reach 100 donors, $10,000 will be unlocked and if we reach our goal of 200 donors, $20,000 will be unlocked—all directly in support of the Simulation Center.

A very special thank you to our matching and challenge gift donors for their generosity: 

  • Bill Benvenuto ’87 CLAS 
  • Mike Howley P ’18, ’20, ’23 
  • Susan Frick ’95 VSB, P ’25 
  • Marie Schaible ’72 BSN
  • The Fitzpatrick Alumni Board, representing recent Villanova Nursing graduates between the class years of '06 to '21
Impact Stories
Thank You!

As National Nurses Week begins, we are thrilled to celebrate your generosity in honor of our next Villanova nurses! In total, 148 donors raised $74,720 to ensure future Villanova nursing students have the very best learning experience. Your gift will make an immediate impact by supporting advanced equipment and technology—including high-tech mannequins, crash carts, pediatric cribs and more—for our Simulation and Learning Resource Center (SLRC). Every nursing course with a clinical component relies upon the SLRC, and your support makes this all possible. THANK YOU to our donors for coming together to enhance the SLRC and to all Villanova nurses for the incredible work you do as clinicians and leaders in health care!

While the campaign has ended, you can give to the SLRC at any time—your support year-round makes this distinctive learning environment possible. Thanks again!
