Advising for nursing students

Current students

Pre-nursing students in the School of Nursing receive academic advising provided by professional advisers in the Office of Student Affairs.  These advisers guide their students through the prerequisite requirements and coordinate their application for the nursing major when ready.

After beginning the nursing curriculum, students are assigned a nursing faculty adviser who will guide them through the nursing major. Advisers in Student Affairs continue to be available for assistance with General Education and Honors Distribution questions.

Transfer Students

Students interested in transferring to major in nursing should submit copies of transcripts to the appropriate prenursing adviser.  All copies need to be legible, showing course name, number and grade earned.  The adviser will return an evaluation to the student indicating where the student stands in relation to prerequisite courses.  An appointment with the adviser can be scheduled after the evaluation is completed.
