Do I have my ducks in a row? 2014 Nursing Edition

We generally have students come to our office who merely want to check to see that they have all their ducks in a row. While we encourage students to come a semester in advance to do this, there are some last minute items students forget or overlook. We hope this presentation clears up  any confusion.

Feel free to contact us at MECCounselor@nvcc.edu with questions. The subject should read:  2014 “program name” Application Questions.
