Student Organizations and Leadership

Student Organizations and Leadership

The School of Nursing encourages students to define their leadership skills, foster student engagement and provide opportunities for all students to connect through interest topics. These student organizations are registered through the University of Minnesota's Student Union and Activities office and provide students ways to connect outside the classroom.

Degree Verification Requests

Degree Verification Requests

We can provide graduating students and alumni with verification of their degree if they received a degree through the School of Nursing. To do so, we will need to receive the verification form with the graduate’s information completed and a release of information authorization. If you have questions about this process, please email SoNStudentInfo@umn.edu.

We will process your verification within ten business days of receipt and forward it on to the Minnesota Board of Nursing, another state's Board of Nursing or a potential/current employer.
