Nursing Information Sessions

Our Nursing Information Sessions provide in-depth information about our programs and how to prepare for them. We strongly encourage you to attend a Nursing Information Session prior to scheduling an appointment with our Nursing advisor(s). If you are unable to attend a live information session, watch this recorded session.

Additionally, we have created short program preparation guides that are discussed in the information sessions. Download "Traditional Nursing Preparation Guide" (PDF) and/or "CEP Nursing Preparation Guide" (PDF).

After attending a Nursing Information Session, we invite you to schedule an appointment with a Nursing advisor. All advising appointments are made online and will be conducted via phone and/or video chat. You must have a Maricopa MEID to make an appointment. Please use your Maricopa email account when making appointments (yourMEID@maricopa.edu).
