The College of Nursing Association of Graduate Nursing Students (AGNS) enables graduate students to have a voice in issues important to their experience at the University of Iowa, and as future leaders of the nursing profession. AGNS also nominates student representatives to serve on the College of Nursing Academic Council and on the University Graduate Student Senate.

Membership is conferred on all MSN, DNP and PhD students upon admission to the College of Nursing.

The purpose of AGNS is to promote the academic and professional development of graduate nursing students through organized meetings, advocacy, virtual needs assessment, and social events designed to encourage graduate students in nursing, who are spread throughout the global community, to meet one another and to form connections.
