The Idaho State University School of Nursing’s Graduate Program is continuing to show signs of excellence four years after its inception. The 2017 American Association of Colleges of Nursing’s Research Doctoral Education Conference and Research Leadership Network Program in San Diego had great representation from the ISU Ph.D. in Nursing program. Second-year students and Jonas Scholars Karen Stevens and Ashley Anderson, first graduate of the ISU Ph.D. in Nursing Program Dr. Tamera Rose and Director of Nursing Research Dr. Mary Nies were in attendance at the events.

“It was an honor to participate with our Outstanding Ph.D. in Nursing students at the American Association of Nursing Doctoral Conference,” said Nies. “It was a great opportunity for our ISU PhD students to network with other Ph.D. students from around the country and to meet and talk with leading Nurse Scientists in their area of research.”
