Distribution of Graduates

Alumni records show that those individuals who have completed graduate programs offered by the Yale School of Nursing are now located throughout the United States and in a number of foreign countries.

Recent graduates hold positions as chief nursing officers, administrative directors, nurse-midwives, nurse practitioners, and nurse managers, and other nurse advocacy, leadership, and research positions in a variety of settings. Their roles are being tested and defined as they function in new situations. Their responsibilities may include direct patient care, supervision and teaching of others involved in caring for patients served by their units or agencies, interdisciplinary planning, and execution and evaluation of services.

Many graduates from former years are now in administrative, teaching, policy, and/or research positions in educational institutions, foundations, or government.

A number hold positions as consultants in their specialty areas to public and private agencies at local, state, federal, and international levels.

Others have assumed responsibility for management of nursing services in both public and private institutions and agencies.
