Graduate Programs Virtual Open House


Our Virtual Open House events offer you the unique opportunity to explore seven graduate and doctoral nursing programs online and in real time. College of Nursing faculty will manage the sessions, and you’ll be able to talk to them and get answers to all of your program and admissions questions.

Key Objectives

  • Discover a supportive community committed to your success.
