Interprofessional Case Competition

UTSNA has invited ANGS to participate in their Interprofessional case competion. More info is below:

The social work, pharmacy, and nursing senate councils are working together to create a case competition in the spring. Students will be working with those in other healthcare fields to complete a case, and get judged by faculty. It’s going to be a great experience for all the students!
This is the case that we will be using. The case for the competition is more on the advanced side for undergraduate nurses at the moment & if some graduate students joined us, that would benefit everyone greatly!
If interested, contact Linda Yoo at

Welcome to The Association of Nurses in Graduate School (ANGS)

ANGS GroupOn behalf of ANGS, I would like to welcome everyone to our new website. Included on this website is a calendar function that will allow members of ANGS, faculty and staff at the University of Texas at Austin to stay up-to-date on current and future ANGS events.  Additionally, the website includes a blog function that the ANGS officers will update regularly.

I would like to give special recognition to our University of Texas at Austin School of Nursing Webmaster, Prati Rijal Trimble for her dedication to students at the University of Texas School of Nursing.  Without her, the formulation and execution of this website would not have been possible.

Please feel free to email ANGS with any comments and suggestions.  We are your organization.
