Assistance is available by appointment or on a walk-in basis (as available). 

The CONH recognizes that there are specific concerns that arise when studying nursing.  We are committed to excellence in nursing education.  Students should remember that faculty members are available for assistance outside of class through phone, e-mail or office hours.

Open lab hours are also posted for the Student Resource Center (Skills Lab) and online so that students may practice skills and receive additional instruction.  

In addition, a Student Success Program has been established to help our future nurses succeed as a student and on the Registered Nurse licensure exam.  Small group programs and one-to-one sessions are held for topics such as study skills, time management, test-taking skills and adjustment to the nursing program.  Students may also be directed to appropriate resources within the University. 

Students may be referred by faculty to the Student Success Coordinator or may self-refer for assistance due to questions or concerns with progress in the program.  Sometimes, a student will simply wish for some reassurance that he or she is on the right track. The Student Success Coordinator may reach out to the students.  Reasons might be similar to faculty referral reasons, but also for things like gaps in progress (taking time off) or previous course failures. 

The Student Success Coordinator coordinates the remediation component of the CONH comprehensive exam policy.  Assistance is also provided for questions related to the application for licensure and the NCLEX-RN® licensure Exam.
