As part of the school’s planetary health efforts, the school co-sponsored Healing the Planet - Healing Ourselves with Northside Healing Space. It included a gathering at the Mississippi River to offer blessings of peace and healing.
The school celebrated the graduation of Bachelor of Science in Nursing, Doctor of Nursing Practice and PhD in Nursing students at ceremonies in May.
Nursing faculty conducted research at the Minnesota State Fair, including the Tip Top Kids study that is analyzing how kids feel about their life and how that changes over time.

PhD students were on campus for the inaugural Doctor of Philosophy Intensive Experience, which is focused on engagement, mentorship and professional development. The PhD program is now delivered in a HyFlex instructional format, which allows students the choice of attending class in person or remotely.
Faculty and staff gathered at the Health Sciences Education Center and virtually for the All School Fall Kickoff for the 2021-2022 academic year.
