Congratulations on taking the first step to expanding your education and looking into a field with limitless possibilities! As the project manager for admissions, I am here to talk to students and prospective students about each of our nursing programs and specialty tracks. Working hand-in-hand with our project manager for recruitment and marketing, my job is to provide information about the programs offered through the School of Nursing and to walk students through the application process by informing them of admission criteria, prerequisites, application deadlines and much more.

In an effort to expand our services I set up personal meetings, perform transcript evaluations. These meetings are usually brief, but give prospective students face-to-face access to one of our Student Affairs members who can answer program-specific questions or direct them to the appropriate contact. Our unofficial transcript evaluations are an easy way for us to help students realize how close they are to becoming eligible applicants and reaching their goal of a becoming a bachelor's, master's, or doctorally prepared nurse. Links to my services can be found below.
