“The [UIC] College of Nursing is clearly committed to providing high quality, comprehensive and compassionate care to all individuals. This commitment is demonstrated in the words and the actions of every individual I have encountered in building relationships to provide care to our inmates. We very much look forward to developing a long and robust relationship with the College of Nursing. We could not ask for a better partner in service.”
