Graduate Assistants (GTA and GRA)


The College of Nursing provides paid teaching and research assistantship appointments to graduate students in nursing who are in good standing in the University and registered as a full-time student. Graduate students, who have selected teaching as their functional area, are encouraged to participate as teaching assistants to facilitate their future employment in schools of nursing. Non-resident students approved to be Teaching or Research Assistants prior to registration are eligible for resident tuition and fees. (For additional information, see Graduate Catalog).
