Graduate degrees in gerontological nursing
The OHSU School of Nursing offers several degrees for geriatric care and gerontological research. You may apply for an M.N.E. degree, doctor of nursing practice (D.N.P.) doctorate, or a research doctorate (Ph.D.) in gerontological nursing. Each has an opportunity for financial support through scholarship or award.
New for 2022! D.N.P. HARP
The Hartford Award for Research and Practice is now offering funding for D.N.P. student’s final projects!
The new HARPs will be awarded to D.N.P. students to help support projects that focus on improving the health and health care of older adults, particularly those projects that concentrate on health disparities related to aging or strategies to improve the health status of older adults in diverse or rural populations.
Hearst Endowed Scholarship
The goal of the Hearst Foundations’ Endowed Scholarship is to support clinical scholarship and prepare advanced practice nursing students in the OHSU D.N.P. program for the complex care needs of older persons.
Our Hartford Center of Gerontological Excellence is pleased to announce the recipients of the Hearst Foundations’ Endowed Scholarship for AY 2022-23. Please join us in congratulating Tiffany Allen, Jennifer Ericson, Coleen Ju and Brianna Shilling. These four outstanding DNP students exemplify the passion and compassion, dedication to excellence, and critical thought required of our next generation of nurse leaders.

The ninth annual Hartford Award for Research and Practice (HARP) Call for OSHU faculty proposals is open.
Applications are due May 16, before 5:00 P.M.
We have two faculty calls: the School of Nursing-HARP (SON-HARP) and the Interprofessional HARP (IP-HARP). All applicants must have a clinical or research doctorate, but the SON–HARP is for SON faculty only. The IP-HARP is available to all OHSU faculty including those with appointments at the Schools of Nursing, Dentistry, Public Health, and Medicine, and the College of Pharmacy. With a focus on team-based science, an interprofessional research team is a requirement of the IP-HARP.
Our faculty are leading the way in geronotological learning, discovery and care. They advance care in dementia, chronic pain, immune response, family caregiving, exercise and more.
