With the national and international nursing shortage continually growing, the need for nurses and nurse leaders is greater than ever.
And the rapid growth in the complexity of health care delivery requires nurses to be prepared with the highest level of scientific knowledge and practice expertise to ensure the health of the public.
The University of Minnesota School of Nursing is uniquely positioned to address these challenges.
Students who graduate from our School of Nursing are well-prepared to serve in a variety of roles: Nurse clinician. Midwife. Administrator. Professor. Researcher. Wellness consultant. In a word: Leader.
But the University of Minnesota not only trains the next generation of nurse leaders, the School of Nursing led national change in the way health care is delivered.
In 2007, it introduced the doctor of nursing practice program. These professionals create and lead new models of care delivery for communities—in our own backyard and around the world.
Our students learn from internationally renowned faculty with an immense research portfolio. Throughout their education, students collaborate with faculty on research projects. Specialty areas include:
- Health promotion among vulnerable populations
- Prevention and management of chronic conditions
- Symptom management
- Health/nursing informatics and systems improvement
- Advanced education in geriatric nursing
