Academic Advisors

Nursing facultyIf granted admission to the graduate program in nursing, you will be assigned an academic advisor. Academic advising is an important part of the learning process at Messiah College; it is a partnership between students and faculty members. Your academic advisor will assist you with your academic and professional goals and growth (e.g. course selection and preparation for advancement through the program). Within the first year of the program each student, in consultation with his/her advisor, will create a written plan for completing the program in the desired timeframe. Students are personally responsible for planning their academic program to meet all graduation requirements.

Academic advisors are charged with the responsibility of communicating with you at least once each semester in which you are enrolled, but it is ultimately your responsibility to keep your advisors informed of any changes in your student record information or circumstances that may prohibit you from staying on track with the required course work.
