On Saturday March 4th, 2017, ANGS had the pleasure of volunteering for the School of Nursing’s Explore UT events. Every year ANGS is a big participant in the Explore UT festivities. We helped students learn about health and fitness in fun, interactive ways. Most of all, we love introducing young people to the world of nursing!
In January ANGS hosted Jessica Lubs, a current AE-MSN student, to help us decode the mysteries of APA formatting. Many students, especially those in the alternate entry program, come from diverse academic backgrounds, and APA formatting can be a big challenge that comes with returning to school. Thank you so much to Jessica for enlightening us and making our papers APA compliant!
On Wednesday, March 8th, 2017 from 11:00 am until 2:00 pm the School of Nursing at the University of Texas at Austin welcomed several professional nursing organizations from our community to share information about their organization to undergraduate and graduate nursing students.

Less than a year ago, The University of Texas at Austin School of Nursing added a new doctoral degree for nurses (The Doctorate of Nursing Practice). With the addition of the DNP program our graduate student body has grown. With this, The Association of Nurses in Graduate School welcomes the first DNP officers in the history of ANGS. As an organization, we feel extremely fortunate to have such dedicated, hard-working and caring individuals joining us as officers.
