The formal name for Fresno State’s Department of Nursing has been changed to the School of Nursing. Fresno State President Joseph I. Castro approved the new name, effective July 17. The school will remain under the College of Health and Human Services. Dr. Mary Barakzai, School of Nursing chair, said the name change reflects a more traditional academic identity direction for the program, which now also offers a doctoral degree in nursing, and keeps in line with other nursing programs nationwide that use the school designation.
