Advisor Information

Pre-Nursing Advisor: Phyllis Salopek

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

Due to the vast number of pre-nursing students, individual advising sessions are not possible. Time is allotted during the advising sessions below to answer individual questions. You can attend either a campus session or a virtual session. 

You do not need to pre-register for these sessions. All students considering applying to the CSU, Chico nursing program should attend a group advising session as soon as possible. Please review the information for Admission Preparation & Requirements (pdf).

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.
