Advisors guide your academic path and help you stay on track to graduate. All nursing faculty members are considered advisors.

How do you get a nursing advisor?

It depends on your degree program or status.

Undergraduate advisement

Prospective students

For questions about the pre-nursing, undecided major or transfer process: Contact the MCHHS Student Success and Advisement Center.

Before you’re admitted into your program, it’s recommended that you meet with an advisor.

Your advisor can best assist you with creating your schedule. Many nursing courses have prerequisites.

Current students

Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN)

You're automatically assigned an advisor from the MCHHS Student Success and Advisement Center. This happens after you're admitted into the BSN program.

If you're not assigned an advisor, contact the MCHHS Student Success and Advisement Center to set up an appointment. 

You receive advisement from an MCHHS advisor all four years. 

A nursing faculty member also mentors you. Once admitted, you’ll receive an email with the name and contact information of your faculty mentor.

For BSN-completion program advisement, contact the program coordinator listed below.
