Academic advisors in the College of Nursing direct course scheduling for individual students and serve as a vital connection between the student and university resources and information. Academic advisors help students connect to:
• an academic major
• general education curriculum
• degree options
• academic remediation
• out-of-class activities
• career services
• study abroad options
• non-academic support services
In addition, academic advisors are experts at explaining how things work at the university, including timelines, policies and procedures with regard to registrations, financial aid, petitions and appeals, and graduation. They can be trusted to provide all of this with accuracy, in confidence, and at the right time.
Knowing the student as an individual allows the academic advisor to take into account the student’s skills, abilities, and interests. In this important role, the advisor encourages students to assume responsibility for their education by helping them develop planning, problem-solving, and decision-making skills.
The College of Nursing’s academic advising staff consists of Nicole Fette, Jeanette Russ, and Lisa Mowery. In addition to academic advising, each staff member works with a particular area or student population including career services, social and education programming, study abroad, and student athletes.
