Academic Resources

  • Academic advising is a collaborative student-centered educational process through which the advisor helps the student set and achieve academic goals; acquire relevant information and services; and make responsible decisions consistent with the student’s values, interests, goals, abilities, and degree requirements. In the College of Nursing, the academic advisor is a professional staff member who is knowledgeable in the admissions process and curriculum of the nursing programs, university resources, and all functions of the College of Nursing Student Affairs Office.
