Pre-Nursing Advising Seminars

The Virtual Pre-Nursing Advising Seminar is designed to give potential applicants the information they need so that they can plan to have a competitive application. The seminar will cover the selective admissions process, admissions requirements, an overview of the point system, and steps needed to effectively plan out the nursing prerequisite coursework.

Applicants are advised to complete the Virtual Pre-Nursing Advising Seminar early in their pre-Nursing journey. Candidates must successfully complete the Virtual Pre-Nursing Advising Seminar before applying to the program. The online modules and assessments are done at your own pace and take approximately 1 hour to complete.
