The Scholarship Unit at the College of Nursing was initiated to advise and facilitate all scholarly needs. The Unit serves as a resource for information for scholarly policies and requirements. As the Unit evolves through the ever-changing requirements for international studies congruent to the needs of the nursing workforce; it aspires to prepare the college scholars for competitive international academic standards. The unit coordinates with various faculty members experts in different fields of Nursing to address academic advising and program review. The unit also guides scholars to the design and implementation of a successful academic plan and it is responsible for ensuring that all international academic institution’s policies and available academic options are explained and understood by college  scholars in order to facilitate academic success.
