School of Nursing



Given the uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus epidemic, applicants to School of Nursing programs have been asking some very important questions, including:

  • How the nursing program will be offered (online versus in-person)
  • If the program will start as scheduled· 
  • Impact of travel limitations if coming from out-of-state

Currently, we do not yet have answers to all of your questions, but will update with the information on this website as soon as we know.
