Undergraduate Nursing Advising for Post-Licensure Programs

Advising Requirements for Post-Licensure Undergraduate Nursing Students

Students in a campus-based post-licensure undergraduate program are required to meet in person with an advisor once a semester.

Students in the accelerated online post-licensure undergraduate program are not required to meet regularly with an advisor. Once admitted to UT Arlington, students in the accelerated online post-licensure program are provided with a course evaluation by a College of Nursing and Health Innovation advisor. Unlike the on-campus program, there is not a registration hold each semester that requires students to meet with their advisor. Students may plan their coursework using the course evaluation provided by the advisor and proceed to registration. Students are encouraged to contact the advising team with any questions. Information related to required courses, registration, academic standing and applying to the nursing program is provided when students are first contacted by an advisor. It is imperative that students read and keep this information for future reference. Most advising is handled via e-mail. However, students may schedule a phone or face-to-face appointment with an advisor as needed by following the instructions below.

Are you an undergraduate in the pre-licensure BSN program? Your advising information is on this page: Undergraduate Nursing Advising for Pre-Licensure Programs.
