Application Support

Students preparing to apply to any professional program should begin thinking about how they want to present themselves in their application at least two terms before they formally apply. The pre-nursing advisors in the PMHSC are available to meet with students to review coursework, assess personal statements, discuss schools of interest, and more. You can schedule your appointment online.

Students looking for assistance with writing their personal statement may look over what the PMHSC believes are the most important questions students should be answering in their personal statement. That is available to check out here. Pre-Nursing advisors also offer a workshop on "Perfecting Your Nursing Application Essay" at least twice a term. Dates and times can be found on our Workshop Series page along with the RSVP link.  The personal statement is an important part of the holistic review for admission. The statement length is 250-500 words, so it is important to think about your statement from the beginning of your academic career.

Make sure to take advantage of all the resources available to you to ensure you are truly prepared to enter the nursing program.
