Case Western Reserve nurses can apply on-the-ground learning in any location—including 30,000 feet in the air.
Through the innovative advanced practice flight nursing program at the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing, graduate students receive intense training in mobile emergency care.
Such forward thinking is the hallmark of a pioneering alumna, Dorothy Ebersbach (NUR ’54), for whom the program is now named. She broke new ground for women as one of just 1,000 Women Airforce Service Pilots during World War II. After nursing school, she found success in a long career in public health.
Ebersbach passed away in November 2011, but through a $4.5 million gift, she combined her two loves—flight and nursing—into a soaring educational legacy.Top ↑
