The information sessions provide you with a basic overview of the program, information regarding prerequisites, and detailed admission criteria. The sessions are not intended to give you individual advising or review of your application materials.
Your advising center is Undergraduate Advising in Mary Gates Hall. Please schedule an appointment with a pre-nursing adviser to discuss course scheduling and questions about our nursing program. The Undergraduate Advising Center also offers information sessions about the nursing program.
