USU's Graduate School of Nursing is celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2013. It was established in 1993 with the Family Nurse Practitioner Program. Since then, it has grown in size and scope. Now, the GSN has four Master of Science in Nursing programs, three Doctor of Nursing Practice programs and a Doctor of Philosophy program.
“We’ve always been an incredible resource for military health care. Our focus has centered around warriors’ and their families’ health and well-being for decades now, and we’ve been hugely successful in these efforts,” said Ada Sue Hinshaw, PhD, dean of the GSN. “As a tribute to our vast array of accomplishments, we’ll celebrate both our heritage and triumphs with 20th anniversary commemorations that will include special guest speakers, research highlights and alumni achievements.”
Members of Congress founded the USU Graduate School of Nursing (GSN) in 1993. The programs are designed to prepare advanced practice nurses and Ph.D.s for the unique challenges of military medicine.
The GSN students explore the fields of nursing through a signature blend of science, research and field training.
The lessons learned on the USU campus and beyond the traditional classroom prepare the GSN graduates to take on a diverse range of challenges and succeed in any environment.
Our mission makes the USU graduates uniquely prepared to shape the future of health care within the federal health care system.
All the resources of the University are available to support faculty and student research endeavors. Additionally, the Faye G. Abdelluh Center for Nursing Research, housed in the GSN, was established in November of 2008 to support the conduct of research. These activities include; budget advisement, assistance with preparation of administrative components of research grants as well as coordination of proposal submission, obtaining assurances from the Office of Sponsored Projects (including: institutional Human Subjects Protection and/or Animal Care and Use Committee, Institutional Biosafety Committee), administrative support of faculty and student projects (including execution of budget).
