Guidance for success

We understand how important guidance is to your success in one of our undergraduate or graduate programs. All of our faculty members are considered advisors and help students make educated decisions about their education and future career choices.

Pre-nursing and transfer advisement

Before students are admitted into either the four-year BSN or the BSN-C degree program, it is recommended that they meet with an advisor in the School of Nursing who can better assist them to develop a plan of study. Many of the nursing courses require prerequisites. 

Our advisors can evaluate the courses taken thus far and help students reach the next level of the program. A full-time staff advisor is available to help students interested in transferring to Missouri State to better understand program requirements and evaluate transfer courses. 

Pre-nursing students or those with an undecided major who have questions about pre-nursing advisement should contact the nursing school for more information.

Undergraduate advisement

All four-year BSN students will be advised by members of our faculty. Once admitted to the four-year BSN program, you will receive an email with the name and contact information for a faculty advisor. Contact the BSN program for more information.

BSN-C advisement can be done via telephone, email, fax or by appointment.

Graduate advisement

Our graduate advisors help students complete advanced degrees while balancing a career. Course offerings are flexible and conveniently fit into a busy schedule. The goal is to help students make additional connections in their specialization and increase their marketability.

For more information concerning graduate advisement, contact the nurse educator program director or the Doctor of Nursing Practice program director.
