At the University of Arizona College of Nursing, RISE stands for "Resident Intensive Summer Experience." For all students and faculty, RISE is an intensive but delightful experience designed to support student success in the Doctor of Nursing Practice and Doctor of Philosophy in Nursing programs. All doctoral students are required to attend RISE in Tucson, AZ on an annual basis.
During RISE, students will:
- become immersed in courses and research tailored to each specific program and specialty
- meet with faculty advisors, fellow classmates and Graduate Student Services staff
- learn more about the degree program, explore coursework and explore funding opportunities
- collaborate with students, faculty and staff
Students or faculty looking for updated RISE schedules and preparation materials should log into the Doctoral Commons course in D2L. Please coordinate with your faculty advisor for yearly attendance information and to determine which days you must attend RISE.
