Faculty Senate & Governance

School of Nursing

In 1984, the first nationwide survey of nursing schools ranked the UW School of Nursing #1 in the nation. It has continued to be ranked in the top five every year since. This tradition of academic excellence begins with a nursing faculty who are extraordinary as individuals and as a team. Their success illustrates what can be achieved when faculty collaborate actively and participate fully at all levels of the school’s decision-making and governance structure.
