For parents

The School of Nursing values its relationship with our students' parents, guardians and significant others. Nursing is one of the most challenging majors and a supportive home environment is critical for success.

Parents are encouraged to:

  • Attend a formal Visitation Day with their student and ask questions
  • Attend the New Student Orientation session to clearly comprehend the rigor of the nursing program and assist in providing advice and direction
  • Keep the line of communication open with your student so that you might have frequent conversations concerning his or her involvement and academic progress
  • Support the school's faculty and staff as we guide your student toward maturity and growth in one of the most critical and trusted professions in the nation.
