This collection includes every USUHS thesis and dissertation from 1981, when the University began granting graduate degrees, through today. The collection includes over 150 theses and dissertations from the Graduate School of Nursing and over 500 from the School of Medicine. Also included are theses from the USUHS Postgraduate Dental College, which was established in 2010. As theses and dissertations are completed each year, the Archives adds those documents to the online collection.
The collection will soon include Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) projects from the Daniel K. Inouye Graduate School of Nursing. These projects demonstrate the graduate's ability to evaluate and apply evidence to improve health and healthcare system outcomes. These original, innovative projects have informed clinical decisions, generated new policies and stimulated process or practice changes, with the goal of improving care outcomes by increasing safety and effectiveness in the highly complex Military and Federal Healthcare Systems.
