- Homer, Juneau, & Kenai AAS ranking deadline for Fall 2020 start
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult and uncertain time. We know this is stressful and is compounded by all of the changes that appear to be occurring daily.
The academic advisors in the College of Health Student Success Center will be conducting advising appointments via zoom or telephone while social distancing guidance is in place. Students can continue to schedule appointments in the same way they have by calling the main line at 907-786-1318 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The School of Nursing's main office and HSB are affected by the the "Hunker Down" order. Access to campus buildings are restricted. Employees and students present for essential campus operations or specified academic reasons may access buildings using keys or WolfCards. Please email questions or concerns to Danielle Dixon at email@example.com. She will be available by email during regular business hours. As we receive updated information, the changes will be filtered through course instructors so please check your Blackboard Announcements and email accounts regularly.
Thanks to our generous donors, SON has created a new nursing scholarship to support the direct success of our students. Last year our donors helped us raise $36,198!
With these funds we will provide SON students with $10,000 in scholarships this fall and add the remaining $15,000 to the endowment created with last year's funds. With your help, over the next several years, the UAA Nursing Scholarship will generate $10,000 in scholarships to support nursing students every year into perpetuity!
COVID-19 UPDATE: The AAS Admissions Committee has voted and approved to extend the submission of the TEAS VI exam through June 12, 2020 due to the closure of testing centers. However, applications will still need to be completed and submitted by May 1, 2020 less the TEAS VI. This is a temporary measure and the deadline shall resume its regular time frame of May 1 in 2021.
TEAS VI can now be completed online with a Virtual Proctor. Students can schedule via the UAA Testing Center website. Once registered Testing will schedule the student through the ATI website and get them set-up to test.
NEW: Starting with the Fall 2020 Bachelor's curriculum CHEM A103/L and CHEM A104/L are no longer required. Students will still need a minimum Chemistry prerequisite: High School chemistry or CHEM A054 or higher, with a grade of “C” or better.
The AAS and BS programs have transitioned to the ATI TEAS exam (sometimes called the TEAS VI) starting July 1, 2019. Previously completed HESI or Kaplan results can still be used through July 1, 2020, or until they expire, whichever comes first.
