Why Nursing?

The College of Nursing is nestled at the base of the breathtaking Wasatch Mountains above Salt Lake City. This setting offers unlimited recreational opportunities, diverse neighborhoods, great schools, art and entertainment.

At the same time, the work our nurse scientists do has made the College of Nursing one of the highest-ranked research institutions in the country. And the supporting resources we provide our faculty--from staff to editing--are unparalleled.

So we have a different question: Why not Utah?
