The Columbia University School of Nursing (CUSON) welcomes visiting faculty and graduate student scholars.

The global mission of the School is ‘to facilitate education, clinical care, and research by fostering strategic partnerships that advance the practice of nursing within the U.S. borders and throughout the world’. The School’s vision is ‘to contribute to the improvement of the world’s health through education, service and research at home and abroad’.  Both short (e.g., 1 day, 3 to 6 weeks) and longer-term (up to 12 months) visitors are welcome.  To apply to visit or to learn more about our visiting scholar program, please see the information below.
