Teaching Assistantship (TA) Positions

Current and Prospective graduate Nursing and Gerontology students interested in gaining teaching experience are encouraged to apply for a Teaching Assistant (TA) position within the College of Nursing. Most TA positions include a service (work) component of 10-20 hours per week and may be eligible for a separate tuition reduction benefit (Tuition Benefit Program - TBP) administered through the University of Utah's Graduate School.

TBP benefits provide eligible graduate students:

  • Reduction in their tuition (reduction based on service component)
  • Non-resident students qualify for resident tuition rates

TA assignments are determined each spring annually for the entire academic year through an application process. TA selection is a competitive process. Students who apply for a TA position and are not selected may still be eligible for a Graduate Assistant (GA) or Research Assistant (RA) position. Likewise, students who apply for a GA or RA position and are not selected may still be eligible for a TA position. Therefore, students who are interested in graduate tuition benefits through working as a TA or GA are encouraged to apply for both.

  • Application will be open until March 28, 2024
  • Application will reopen for Fall/Spring in July, 2024

Research Assistantship (RA) Positions

Nursing and Gerontology graduate students interested in gaining research experience are encouraged to submit an RA interest form. Most RA positions include a service component of 10-20 hours per week, and eligible students may qualify for the Graduate Tuition Benefits program (TBP) administered through the University's Graduate School. TBP provides for a reduction in your tuition bill and provides resident tuition rates to non-resident students.
