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 Academic Advisor once a semester.

Students in the Accelerated Online post-licensure undergraduate program are not required to meet regularly with an Academic 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 Academic Advisor. Unlike the on-campus program, there is not a registration hold each semester that requires students to meet with their Academic Advisor. Students may plan their coursework using the Degree Map provided by the Academic Advisor and proceed to registration. Students are encouraged to contact the RN 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, face-to-face, or virtual appointment with an Academic 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.

Meeting in person with an RN-BSN / RN-MSN Advisor

There are three options available to meet with your advisor:

  1. Schedule a Phone or Virtual Appointment - Call or Email to schedule:
    • Call Us (preferred): 817-272-2776 to schedule an appointment (select option 1 and then option 1)
    • Email (if unable to call): - please remember to include your contact information, ten-digit UTA ID number, and your preferred date and time for an appointment.
  2. Walk-In - Advisors are available from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. to assist students in the RN-BSN and RN-MSN programs.

Virtual appointments are conducted via Microsoft Teams. All current students have access to teams through their Mavs Mail account. Instructions will be provided when an appointment is set.

Before your appointment:

  1. Have a list of questions prepared to ask your advisor.
  2. Familiarize yourself with your program information, and your current progress in your program.
  3. Make arrangements to be on time to your advising appointment. Students who are more than ten minutes late will be rescheduled.

Nursing License Verification

Students are required to provide verification of an active unencumbered license for acceptance into UTA and the Nursing program. The College of Nursing and Health Innovation uses NURSYS, a national database, to verify student license credentials. The NURSYS licensure and disciplinary database is the repository of the data provided directly from the Nursing Commission to the National Council of State Boards of Nursing’s (NCSBN) and is primary source equivalent. To learn more about NURSYS, please click or tap here.

To assist in expeditiously verifying your credentials, please ensure your information is available in this database.

We also encourage you to sign up for NURSYS e-notify.

As a nurse you will enjoy receiving license expiration reminders, status updates to your license, and tracking your nurse license verifications for endorsement. Visit the list above to learn more about the benefits of e-notify.
