Welcome to the University of Utah College of Nursing!


Leaders in Nursing Education, Research and Clinical Care


The College of Nursing is an integral part of the University of Utah Health Sciences Center. We are committed to working together to serve the people of Utah and beyond by continually improving individual and community health and quality of life. We strive for excellence in education, research and clinical care, each mission being vital to one another and to our overall success. Diversity and inclusiveness, independent inquiry and collegiality form the fabric of everyday life for faculty and students.

We offer nursing education programs in both the traditional and online formats that cover a wide range of degrees and specializations. From nursing early assurance, accelerated and an online RN-BS program to master’s of science and doctorate degrees, the University of Utah’s accredited College of Nursing is a strong, interactive and financially affordable option for students of all age ranges and background experience.

The College of Nursing is also home to the Gerontology Interdisciplinary Program offering degree programs and certificates in gerontology, and the Hartford Center of Geriatric Nursing Excellence.
