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.
Faculty and students have access to numerous resources within the University to support their research endeavors. Further, the Faye G. Abdellah Center for Military and Federal Health Care Research was established within the GSN in November 2008 to support each phase in the grant life cycle, from a research idea and identification of funding opportunities to dissemination and grant close-out.
