Career Services

The Duke University School of Nursing (DUSON) Student Success Center—Career Services meets nursing students where they are on their individual journey to empower them in building careers that fulfill the greater mission of advancing nursing. We achieve this mission by providing personalized career coaching, resume and cover letter critique, personal statement and CV assistance, interview preparation, job and internship strategies, skill development and professional competency, network building, and education around career paths, industries, and employers.

Career Services also offers drop-in sessions every Friday from 12 to 2 p.m. Students should contact Michael Rudisill by visiting College Advising.

Let us help you:

  • Implement a career strategy that includes exploring nursing career options, clarifying direction, and making decisions
  • Facilitate connections with alumni and a broad range of employers domestically and internationally 
  • Provide information about employment opportunities in nursing 
  • Connect with your peers, alumni, faculty, and staff to engage in a nursing community that contributes to your professional growth and development
