Veterans interested in pursuing a nursing degree or who are currently enrolled in a nursing program, will have access to a student advisor. The advisor will assist student veterans with financial and academic issues and will refer student veterans to University and community services and resources. Students can meet with the advisor regularly to resolve academic barriers and find the necessary support that will help student veterans meet their goals.
The student advisor will provide veteran students with:
- Academic advising
- Assistance with translating military medical experience into college credit
- Referral to veteran services on campus and in the community
The program offers credit by examination options for student veterans who have military medical experience or training. Credit by exam will assist veteran students by decreasing the time to graduation by fulfilling credit requirements towards degree completion.
