In addition to his involvement with the External Advisory Board and the YSN Alumnae/i Association, Varley supports YSN Dean Grey as she works to address the critical need for financial aid. "What really bothers me is that I don't want any person who could enroll at YSN, and later become a nurse-leader for the next generation, to be deterred by the cost," stated Varley. "Financial aid is a huge part of the enrollment equation."
