Vanderbilt University School of Nursing Overview
Nursing is one of the most valued professions and requires a unique combination of human, technical, and critical thinking skills.
For over five decades, Vanderbilt University School of Nursing has provided men with unrivaled opportunities to excel as nurse practitioners, researchers, administrators, and educators.
The first male dean of nursing in the U.S. was Luther Christman. We are honored to say he served his first deanship at VUSN.
This report will reflect VUSN’s longstanding dedication to educating nurses who help shape the future of health care.
