BSN Program Information Sessions and Tours

We are offering 13 BSN Information Sessions and Tours during the
2015-'16 academic year. They are primarily intended for high school juniors and seniors interested in a pre-nursing major, and current college students, including transfer students, who wish to change their majors to pre-nursing.

Sessions are held during the academic year so prospective students can see what it's like to be on campus when the majority of students are here.

No reservation is needed. Simply come to room 315 in the College of Nursing Building on one of the tour dates below. Each session begins promptly at 1 p.m. Eastern Time and lasts 60-90 minutes.

An information packet is reviewed, followed by a tour of the nursing labs and clinical simulation rooms. Nursing student ambassadors are available to answer "what it's really like" to be in a challenging nursing program.

No weekend or individual sessions are available, nor are sessions held during UK breaks (except  Aug. 7 and March 14).

To protect the teaching and learning environment for students and faculty, visitors are not allowed in nursing classes nor in clinical settings.
