School of Nursing officially opens new Student Services Wing

The WVU School of Nursing today officially opened its new Student Services Wing on the Morgantown campus.

The new area offers a concierge approach for students, including:

  • Housing all advisors in one location for class scheduling and academic progress questions
  • Providing all admissions and enrollment information through the director of admissions and enrollment
  • Providing all scholarship and graduation information, including how to file FAFSA and how to apply for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX ®).
  • Offering a comfortable student lounge where students can relax and watch tv or work on assignments and a break room where students can warm up their breakfast or lunch
  • Housing a clinical placement coordinator who can answer placement questions

“Our new student services wing was designed with our students in mind,” said Tara Hulsey, Ph.D., vice president of health promotion and wellness and dean of the WVU School of Nursing. “We want to make all the information our students need to succeed easily accessible while providing them a warm, welcoming environment where they can relax between busy days of classes and clinical assignments.”

Future additions to the lounge will include:

  • A stress management advising/Mental Health coordinator
  • A financial coordinator
  • A career placement coordinator
