Diversity & Inclusion

 

The Graduate School of Nursing at the University of Massachusetts Medical School is a dynamic academic community where staff, students and faculty come together to advance the mission of preparing nurse scientists, advanced practice nurses, nurse educators and nurse leaders who will improve the health and well-being of the citizens of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and beyond.

 

Our community of scholars, educators and learners strive to promote human dignity in all our endeavors. We acknowledge that to truly promote human dignity, we must recognize all dimensions of diversity and appreciate openness to differences in attitudes, perceptions, and behaviors. We strive to interact with difference around and among us with respect, kindness and trust. We believe in compassion and integrity. We hope that all our relationships are strengthened through our desires and actions to fully recognize, understand and make use of the contributions of others. We value excellence and strive to build our community so that all individuals and groups can reach their highest potential.

The mission of the GSN is to prepare nurse scientists, advanced practice nurses, nurse educators and nurse leaders who together will improve the health care of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and beyond.

    Student Spotlight

     

    I wanted to study nursing as I’ve been grateful to work with some amazing nurses who care for patients and their families with compassion, dedication, and tremendous heart. That compassionate heart of nursing can impact patients in such a powerful way. I wanted to help contribute to that impact and I’m grateful as UMass Graduate School of Nursing gave me the opportunity to begin my own path in nursing.

    Student Spotlight

     

    Word of mouth initially drew me to UMMS, because of the focus on the needs of vulnerable populations locally and globally. The Graduate School of Nursing PhD program gives me tools to pursue research I’m passionate about - even if that changes now that I’m enrolled.
