The formal name for Fresno State’s Department of Nursing has officially been changed to the School of Nursing, effective July 17th, as per Fresno State President Joseph I. Castro. The school will remain under the College of Health and Human Services. Chair of the School of Nursing, Dr. Mary Barakzai, said the name change reflects a more traditional academic identity direction for the program, which now offers a doctoral degree in nursing. Fresno State now joins other nursing programs nationwide that currently use the school designation. For more information on the School of Nursing, please visit their webpage.
