NursingCrew 2023

An academic learning community for pre-nursing students.

Nursing Students

Is nursing in your future? Not sure how to get there?

The new NursingCrew program is a great way to successfully navigate your nursing journey. Students who enter NursingCrew will work together for the first two years, taking general education courses, learning time management, improving study skills and preparing for potential admission to the Associate Degree Nursing program.

If you are committed to pursuing a career in nursing, this program is for you.

What to Expect

As a member of the 2023 NursingCrew, you’ll be part of a community of like-minded students, all supporting each other toward a common goal. You will build relationships with your fellow pre-nursing as you connect inside and outside the classroom. The program will include:

  • Social and academic activities throughout the semester.
  • Tools to provide an easy transition from high school to college life.
  • A set schedule of classes that allow Nursing Crew members to take the same Nursing prerequisite courses together.
