Types of Advising

Peer Navigators

We encourage prospective students to visit a Peer Navigator in the gallery in Trinity Hall. Peer Navigators are current nursing students in the Chico State Nursing Club(opens in new window) who volunteer to answer questions about the nursing program and the application process. They are available on a drop-in basis.
