New freshmen are advised by the staff of the Center for Academic Excellence when registering for first semester courses, after which time they will be assigned faculty advisors. In most cases, Freshman Seminar instructors become their students’ advisors until the student declares a major. As soon as a student decides on a major, the student should take a Declaration of Major form to the department chair for the chosen major. The chair will assign a faculty member in the student’s major as the new advisor. The student obtains the signature of the new advisor and submits the form to the Office of the Registrar in Lumbee Hall (UNCP Academic Catalog 2010-2011).
The Department of Nursing takes the responsibility of advisement very seriously as we believe advising students will lead to successful completion of the requirement for the BSN. Currently, all faculty members serve as advisors for both prospective and enrolled nursing majors.
Process for Admission to the Nursing Program
The Department of Nursing Admissions Committee, in collaboration with the Chair, reviews all applications and student grades for admission to the nursing major. Letters of admission, placement on alternate list and denial are generated from the Office of the Department of Nursing Chair. Once admitted, all communication regarding registration and requirements for enrolling in nursing courses are distributed through this office. The Office of the Department of Nursing Chair changes each newly admitted student’s major from the PREN university code to either the GNUR (pre-licensure BSN students) or the NURS code (RN-BSN students). If needed, a Department of Nursing advisor will be assigned.
Students who wish to transfer to the UNCP Department of Nursing from another nursing program must be eligible to return to the transferring nursing program in order to be eligible for admission to the nursing program.
Transfer of Nursing Course Credits
The student who has taken nursing courses in other accredited baccalaureate programs may request transfer of the credits into the UNCP nursing program.
The student will request transfer of nursing credits through the Office of Department of Nursing Chair.
The student must supply course syllabi from previous institutions at time of request.
The Chair, if needed, will solicit from appropriate faculty members, an evaluation of equivalence to Department of Nursing courses and a decision as to acceptance or rejection of the credits.
The Chair will receive the transfer decision, record the transfer and communicate the decision to the registrar’s office and the student.
