Academic Advisors for Currently Admitted Pre-Nursing, Nursing and RN to BS Students

If you are an admitted pre-nursing, nursing, or RN to BS student, and you plan to make an advising appointment, please find your respective advisor below and schedule an appointment using eScheduler.

Undergraduate Prospective Students, please note: Due to the large number of prospective applicants for our Nursing Programs, Student Affairs is only able to offer individual advising appointments to admitted, pre-nursing students.

If you have a question about our programs or about how to apply, please consider attending a live information session. These sessions allow prospective students to get detailed information about USF's Nursing Degrees. We offer information sessions live in Tampa several times each semester to try and accommodate everyone's busy schedule.
