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.”
The USU Graduate School of Nursing admits advanced practice nurses in the military and other federal services.
Admission to the all GSN programs is competitive and requires School of Nursing faculty endorsement and approval.
GSN scholars are diverse but unified by the common goal of advancing military and public health medicine.
This sense of shared purpose and the University's bold mission to care for those in harm's way makes the GSN a very special place.
