Orientation Checklist for First Year Students
The School of Nursing welcomes you to California State University San Marcos! As your Pre-Health Science/Pre-Nursing/Nursing Advisors, we look forward to working with you as you prepare for a career in Nursing and in completing the Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing. All newly-admitted students interested in Nursing enter the University as a Pre-Health Science major.
We will see you at a University Orientation in Summer for those admitted in Fall to the University. Each University Orientation Session, listed for the Nursing major, will include a special break-out session specific to the Nursing major. We will be explaining the nursing major and helping you to select and register for your classes for the Fall semester. Please take a few minutes to read through the information below, as it will make our Academic Advising portion of Orientation much more enjoyable and less confusing.
Your Pre-Health Science/Pre-Nursing/Nursing Advisors,
Gwen Hansen and Brandon Bogges
