Director's Welcome

School of Nursing Interim Director Dr. Christine Michel Welcome to the UAA School of Nursing website! I am so happy you want to learn more about the UAA School of Nursing (SON). If you are considering nursing as a career choice you will find that SON offers a variety of nationally accredited options in nursing to choose from; all of which provide students with a robust educational experience.

At the main campus at Anchorage, the UAA Nursing School is housed in a beautiful new Health Science Building. The building includes a wonderful, state-of-the-art interprofessional simulation center that we utilize to introduce our students to their future practice environments. Educated at the highest levels and holding a variety of specialty trainings across the nursing profession, our faculty work extremely hard to provide a relevant and robust curriculum for our nursing students to fully prepare them for practice. Our exceptional staff provide the backbone of our programs. From helping students through the admission process, to advising them on their prerequisites, to supporting them while in the program, our staff demonstrate daily their commitment to student success. To learn more, see our Faculty and Staff pages.
