Advisor Information

Pre-Nursing Advisor: Julie Garnett
Office location: Trinity 120
Office hours: Monday - Friday 10 AM - 12 PM and 3 PM - 5 PM

E-mail: - Important: Please attend an advising session before sending questions via e-mail.

All students considering applying to the CSU, Chico nursing program should attend a group advising session. Please review the information for Admission Preparation & Requirements.pdf located on the School of Nursing Homepage under the heading "Basic BSN Program Prospective Students."

Due to the vast number of pre-nursing students, individual advising sessions are not possible. Time is allotted during advising sessions to answer individual questions. 
You do not need to pre-register for on-campus sessions.

Virtual sessions are intended for those not currently attending CSU Chico, and live outside a 30-mile radius from the university. Spaces are limited to five registrants per session. To sign up, email and indicate your location and preferred session date. Spots will be filled on a first come, first served basis. You will be emailed an invitation and instructions on how to access the session using your computer or cellular device.

Tips for Pre-Nursing Students

If you are considering a degree in nursing, declare Pre-Nursing as your major. The Nursing major only applies to those students who have been accepted into the School of Nursing program.

If you are interested in applying to other schools of nursing, visit the California BRN Web site for addresses. This Web site is linked to all nursing programs in California. We recommend that you have a back-up plan (other school or major), in case you are not admitted to Chico’s nursing program. Only 1 of every 4-5 applicants is currently being admitted.
