Beginning in Spring 2020, there will be a change in the structure in which the master nursing curriculum is delivered. Instead of offering the first nursing course twice a year (January/Spring and August/Fall), we will be starting smaller groups of students five times a year (January & March/Spring I & II; May/Summer; August & October/Fall I & II).

This is exciting news because we will now add summer to the start terms for our nursing program. Beginning with the Fall 2020 start term, determination of cohort placement for the first clinical course (NUR 110) in the nursing master curriculum for students admitted to a Spring or Fall start term will be made upon admission. Each entering cohort will progress together through the nursing master curriculum in the lock-step sequence presented below.
