The Office of Student Services is comprised of dedicated, knowledgeable and student-centered professionals who are prepared to advise students well before they begin the nursing program and afterwards. We are available to answer your questions, address your concerns, and provide you with the support you will need as you navigate the University, the admission process, and life as a nursing student.
Once you declare nursing as your major, you will be assigned a KCON Academic Advisor. You should meet with your advisor at least once per semester so we can assist you with degree planning, registration, admission issues; offer personal support and career guidance; and help you with any other GVSU issues.
“Academic advisors provide students with the needed connection to the various campus services and supply the essential academic connection between these services and the students. In addition, academic advisors offer students the personal connection to the institution that the research indicates is vital to student retention and student success.” (Nutt, 2003).
So come see us! We will make every effort to reach out to you, offer relevant programming, and keep you informed of important information, but nothing replaces the experience of a one-on-one advising session. We’re here to help – please let us!
