Indiana University School of Nursing Celebrates 2020 Graduates

Let us never consider ourselves finished nurses....we must be learning all of our lives.
-Florence Nightingale

Dean Robin NewhouseCongratulations Class of 2020!
When you reflect back on this time of your life, you will smile, understanding fully the magnitude of what you achieved during an unprecedented pandemic, witnessing a time when nurses were recognized daily for their heroic efforts, clinical expertise, and compassionate care of seriously ill patients.

You now join the ranks of Indiana University School of Nursing alumni who are proud to call themselves an IU Nurse.

We wish you every success!

Dean Robin Newhouse


Janek SquibbWhen I first arrived home for spring break, just days after in-person learning was suspended for the semester and graduation lingered in limbo, I was angry and upset. All of the momentous activities we envisioned – capstone, graduation celebrations, trips, and gatherings with loved ones – were no longer able to happen in the way we initially planned.

It was my mom who calmly said to me, “Janek, I’m sorry that your senior year didn’t turn out the way you hoped it would, but I think you’re forgetting about all of the positive aspects of your life that you’ve been blessed with.” I was reminded in that moment just how powerful a change in perspective can be.

Class of 2020,
Today, let’s celebrate all of the experiences we’ve had during nursing school instead of dwelling on the ones we don’t get to have. Reflect on photos and videos, share stories, reach out to classmates, and thank the people who made it all possible.

We have encountered numerous obstacles and immeasurable joy, early mornings at clinical and late nights studying, tears and laughter, doubt and confidence. Through these peaks and valleys, I’m grateful that we’ve walked through this journey of personal and professional growth together. May we always remember the importance of a grateful heart, both as we look back on these years and forward towards our futures as nurses.

A special thank you to my support system and the greatest blessings in my life – Mom, Dad, Mac, Cainan, Grandma, Grandpa, Hannah, Sarah, Morgan, Liz, and Natalie. I love you all!

Janek Squibb, BSN '20
