Advising Requirements for Prelicensure Nursing Students

Students in the campus-based BSN program are required to meet with an advisor once a semester.

Students in the accelerated online BSN program are encouraged to meet regularly with an advisor- either in person or virtually. Once admitted to UT Arlington, students in the accelerated online 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 their advisor 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, virtual, or face-to-face appointment with an advisor by clicking the link above.

Who Is My Advisor?

Students who have been admitted to Nursing and Health or the BSN Prelicensure nursing program: You will be advised by a CONHI advisor.

Freshmen: Current freshmen and undeclared students with less than 45 hours are advised in the University Advising Center (UAC). Visit the UAC's website for more information about contacting and scheduling to meet with a UAC advisor.

Prospective students may meet with a nursing advisor for informational purposes. Click here to directly book a 30-appointment with an advisor. You may see any advisor you wish, subject to their availability and schedule.


Meeting in person with your BSN Advisor

  2. Same day in-person Advising (Now available daily) - Schedule a same day in-person appointment by visiting 554 Pickard Hall. Please make note of the following procedures for same day advising appointments:

    2. Same day advising is on a first-come, first serve basis available daily and will close once all spots are filled.
    3. Same day advising schedules will be available each morning (by 8:15 a.m.). Students may sign up in person in room 554 of Pickard Hall (using the QR code posted). After selecting a time slot, students are welcome to leave and return to the Office of Enrollment and Student Services (the advising area) ten minutes prior to their selected time to allow time to sign-in on the computer near the receptionist's window.
