College of Nursing COVID-19 Resources
Dear College of Nursing Students:
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, many things in our life are changing daily. What does not change, however, is our commitment to you and your education. While the methods of delivery will change, and our interactions with each other take greater advantage of remote technology, the faculty and staff of the College of Nursing are continuing our work to support you.
Even though interaction will be from a distance until this health threat subsides, the college's support staff is ready to help you adjust to this change in our educational environment. Academic advisors and faculty members are working together to ensure that students' needs are met. Please reach out to your faculty members or ASO to maintain connection during this time.
Most importantly, please be safe and follow the advice of healthcare experts as we work together to get through this unprecedented situation. Be sure to visit wayne.edu/coronavirus, which is updated daily with important campus information. Please see below for College of Nursing specific information.
In this time of challenge, we are all called upon to act as responsible citizens, each doing our part to slow the spread of the virus. Be well.
