Entry Program Information Sessions

Do you want to be a UA Wildcat nurse?

Nursing Information Sessions

Ideal for students in high school or in the first year of community college and applying to the University of Arizona as an incoming freshman, information sessions will cover information about our pre-licensure programs including Pre-Professional Nursing major, an undergraduate major that prepares students for professional admission to our Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) or Master's Entry to the Profession of Nursing (MEPN) programs. This major is intended for students who are exploring nursing options and have not completed their prerequisite courses for professional admission to our BSN or MEPN program. Information sessions are located in room 122 in the College of Nursing.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to COVID-19, the upcoming April information sessions will be held virtually through Zoom. Sessions are scheduled for the same time. Please register for a session so that we may have your email to send out the zoom link.

Application Academies

Ideal for students who are ready to apply for the professional BSN program or interested in the MEPN program in 2019. Applicants are encouraged to bring their laptops for one-on-one help with filling out the application.  Attendance is not required for program admission, and attendance has no impact on an applicant's admission status. The beginning of each Application Academy will cover the basics of the BSN and MEPN programs, timelines, and admissions processes. The remainder of the academy will be spent working on the application with the help of a College of Nursing academic advisor.  Application Academies are located in room 105 in College of Nursing.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to COVID-19, we are postponing application academies until we are closer to the actual BSN and MEPN application deadlines. Please monitor this page as we approach summer 2020 and determine our future session times.

Are you a current UA student, wanting to change your major to Nursing?

If you are currently a UA student and wish to change your major to Pre-Professional Nursing, please attend an Information Session. Interested students are required to attend these workshops to determine if they are eligible to change their major. Professional admissions information and requirements will also be covered in this session. Eligibility requirements to declare the major are listed online at our Pre-Professional Nursing page.

PLEASE NOTE: All information sessions and application academies will be held at the College of Nursing, 1305 N. Martin Ave., Tucson, AZ. The College of Nursing is located one block north of Speedway and one block west of Campbell. Please consult the campus map for visitor parking options.
