Nursing Informational Sessions
Individuals who would like to meet with the pre-nursing advisor and/or who wish to learn more about the pre-nursing/nursing program should attend one of our monthly Info Sessions. Sessions are scheduled for two hours each. Participants should arrive 5 - 10 minutes early for check-in before the session. Some Topics that will be discussed:
- Steps on becoming a pre-nursing student
- Differences between pre-nursing and nursing programs
- Program Policies
- Admission criteria
- Entrance exam requirements
- A question/answer period is included
- Attendance at one Info Session is a required component to the core-nursing application
Current Pre-Nursing students are encouraged to schedule an appointment with the Pre-Nursing Advisor by coming up to the Student Affairs Center to schedule this meeting. During the advising appointments students discuss how their current classes are going, strategize their academic plans, and get ready to register for the upcoming semesters.

Core-NURS students are assigned a faculty advisor who serves as their academic advisor. Core-NURS students are encouraged to visit with their assigned advisor for any questions they may have regarding classes.
