Teaching Assistants

Teaching Assistants play an important role within the Edson College of Nursing and Health Innovation and as part of the ASU Community as a whole. The purpose of the program is to help TA’s develop their teaching skills while building their resumes to prepare for the job market. With this appointment, students also receive several additional benefits including health insurance, tuition waiver, parental leave, and library privileges. More information can be found in the TA Handbook.

These students represent both the PhD and DNP programs and work 20 hours a week in Edson College classrooms. The program is a significant benefit to the college because each of these TA’s help carry the course load. Edson College hires once a year and will be recruiting for TA’s in the Spring.

For the 2019-2020 academic year, the Edson College is pleased to welcome 12 TA’s to the college.
