The University of Minnesota School of Nursing received an A- on the 2024 Planetary Health Report Card.

Originally founded in 2019, the Planetary Health Report Card is a metric-based tool for evaluating and improving planetary health content in health professional schools. At each participating institution, student-led, faculty-mentored teams fill out the report card.

Sections of the report card include planetary health curriculum, interdisciplinary research in health and environment, community outreach and advocacy, support for student-led planetary health initiatives, and campus sustainability.

University of Minnesota students Kent Boyd, Jo Bjorgaard, Tumani Jackson, Yvonne Mongare and Bianca Onrubia reviewed the school’s programs, with Clinical Professor Teddie Potter, PhD, RN, FAAN, and Clinical Assistant Professor Ryne Wilson, DNP, RN, serving as faculty mentors.

Results are published in an annual Earth Day report, which assists in tracking institutional change over time.
