Nurse Educator Track Guidelines
Participants enrolled in the Nurse Educator program must comply with the Byers School of Nursing Graduate admissions requirements.
The Nurse Educator program is offered using a distance learning methodology*.
Upon admission to their Nurse Educator program, the student is assigned to a graduate faculty member who will work with the student to develop a curriculum plan. Students are encouraged to meet with their advisors prior to registration each semester to confirm their program plan.
New students are given instructions on how to register with their acceptance letter. Before or during the first half of the first semester, students are encouraged to meet with their faculty advisors to map out a curriculum plan. For the remainder of the program students are responsible for registering for their own classes. The process is as follows:
- Graduate students may register on-line via the Walsh University Cavalier Center (http://www.walsh.edu).) To register on-line, the student must obtain an alternate PIN from their assigned academic advisor and resolve any holds that may prevent registration.
- Obtain a form from the website (https://www.walsh.edu).) Click on “Academic” and scroll down to the “Office of the Registrar” link. Scroll down to the link “forms” and then on “Graduate Registration Form”. Download as copy and fax (330) 490-7372, mail, or present the completed form to the Registrar’s Office (located in Farrell Hall).
