Network of Doctoral Students

NeDS was founded to meet the specific interests of doctoral (DNP and PhD) students, and now also welcomes Masters students in the School of Nursing.

The purpose of NeDS is to promote collaborative, supportive relationships and resource sharing opportunities among graduate students in the UW School of Nursing. It is the intent of the organization to:

  • Facilitate social, educational, and professional development opportunities regarding topics of mutual interest
  • Provide a venue for the exploration and discussion of how doctoral students in nursing will work together
  • Provide a forum to examine the social and political implications of nursing research and practice
