• History was made at UWG’s summer graduation ceremony this past Saturday. The Tanner Health System School of Nursing saw its first graduate earning a Doctor of Education in nursing education walk across the stage.

The Ed.D. in nursing education online program admitted its first cohort of students in the fall of 2012. Now, after 60 semester hours and 12 dissertation credit hours, Jaime Carter is the first student to whom UWG will award an Ed.D. in nursing education.
