For Prospective GEPN Students

The GEPN Coordinator facilitates successful progress towards degree by assisting students to navigate the academic arena. Potential applicants to the program may schedule an advising appointment and are highly encouraged to attend an online informational session.

Online Informational Sessions

Online informational sessions are held multiple times per semester. Please visit the event page for upcoming events.

Virtual Tour of the UH Translational Health Science Simulation Center

The 8,000 square foot center on the 3rd floor of Webster Hall at UH Manoa Campus, integrates state of the art simulation equipment, electronic patient records, and advanced audio-video systems to support education and research for nursing students. Simulated patient care environments provide controlled instructional settings for students to practice clinical skills in a safe learning environment without impacting real patient outcomes. The center provides students a venue to continually advance skills and innovate new knowledge to provide safe, quality healthcare for the people of Hawaii. Take a virtual tour!

Nursing Licensure and State Authorization

Once the student has completed the pre-licensure year of the Graduate Entry Program in Nursing, the Hawaii Board of Nursing determines the applicant eligibility to obtain a state license, which will allow the licensee to practice nursing in the State of Hawaii. UH Manoa Nancy Atmospera-Walch School of Nursing (NAWSON) is unable to confirm that the Nursing program meets the professional licensure requirements outside of the State of Hawaii and recommends the student contact the respective professional licensing board to determine the licensure requirements in the state in which the student will practice.
