Student Success Advisor

The distance ABSN is a rigorous, full-time program designed to get you to your goal of becoming a nurse in under two years. That’s why we offer robust support services to help you navigate your academic experience.

From application through graduation, your student success advisor will guide you every step of the way and ensure you have access to the resources you need to be successful. Some of the ways they will support you include:

  • Advising you on your degree path
  • Providing guidance and counseling regarding course selection
  • Assisting you during orientation
  • Monitoring your progress in class and checking in to discuss your needs

Clinical Placement Support

Hands-on patient care in clinical settings is a requisite component of the distance ABSN degree. During your clinicals, with the supervision of a licensed RN, you’ll practice what you learned in the online classroom on real patients. 

Our clinical placement team will work closely with you to provide a seamless placement experience, making sure your rotations meet university and national guidelines. 

See our Clinical Placement FAQs for more information.
